Global Health Case Competition

Miami University's third-annual Global Health Case Competition, an academic competition in which teams of students collaborate to design a solution to a real-world global health problem, begins Sunday, November 4th!

What Is It?

Teams of 4-6 will be presented with a prompt asking them to address a topical global health issue on Sunday, November 4th. These teams will have one week to design a innovative, appropriate, and sustainable solution to alleviate the problem. Teams will then present their case in front of a panel of judges with careers in a variety of global health-related fields on Sunday, November 11th. An awards ceremony with a key-note speaker will occur on the evening of Monday, November 12th. The best participants will be given the opportunity to compete in the International Global Health Case Competition at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in the spring.

Who Can Participate?

The competition is free and open to students of all majors and career paths. Students may register as a team or as individuals, in which case we will assign them to a team. Teams must consist of at least three different colleges of the university (for example, College of Arts and Sciences, Farmer School of Business, and School of Creative Arts). We will do our best to work with you to match individuals with teams to meet registration requirements. This competition is a great opportunity for students to built their creative thinking skills while boosting their resumes.

Medical Ethics Workshop

Thursday, November 8th, 6:30-8:00pm
Upham Hall 127

In collaboration with Delta Epsilon Mu and AMSA the Mallory-Wilson Center will be hosting a medical-ethics workshop open to all pre-health students!  There will be a presentation on medical/bioethics with an opportunity for students to put learned principles into practice with a mini case-study.  This is a great opportunity as ethical thinking is not only important for all healthcare providers, it is something more and more admissions interviews address, so there's no such thing as too much practice!

I will attach a flyer when it is complete, but for now, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me at walborta@miamioh.edu.

PMD 310: Specialties in Medicine seminar

Spring Semester
Thursdays, 4:25-5200pm
007 Pearson Hall

A 1-credit hour seminar designed for pre-health juniors and seniors. Students will work in groups to research specific medical specialties and present their findings to the class. Areas of discovery can include amount and type of training, job satisfaction, the variety of cases a practitioner might see, working in teams and roles of team members, private vs. corporate practice, typical day, job satisfaction, etc. The following week, a physician specializing in the field the student group researched will speak to the class about their work. The hour-long class could include a presentation, distribution of relevant literature, and lots of Q and A which could evolve into a discussion about the specific medical field.
