Graduate and undergraduate students enrolled at UK are invited to participate. Teams should be comprised of four to six students and at least 3 schools should be represented. After you register and are selected, members will be randomly assigned to teams. Post-graduate and post-doctoral fellows are not eligible to participate. Students who wish to participate may come from any UK college, but experience or interest in global health is crucial.
Teams will be randomly formed, and made up of 4-6 students, each team representing a minimum of 3 colleges. The maximum amount of teams will be 18.
The case will be released the week of the competition. Presentations will be due on the morning of the Saturday competition. Once the case is released, each team may decide when and how much to work on its presentation. There will be a team work day held the Friday before the competition. Teams are encouraged to stay after the competition on Saturday for networking and social activities.
For the 2017 scenario, students served as a multidisciplinary consultant team to the President of Honduras, in an effort to reduce gun violence in the country. Honduras has been declared the most violent country in the world due to a devastatingly high murder rate. A competition was held that allowed the great minds of the nation, and the world, to come together and design a solution to the violence they face on a daily basis.
Registration for the 2018 competition will open later this year. Check back here for further instructions, coming soon.
