About the Case Competition

Background Structure

The National Association of Health Services Executives expanded its scholarship program in 1996 to include the Annual Everett V. Fox Student Case Analysis and Presentation Competition, known as the “Case Competition”. The Case Competition is a scholarship program that utilizes the case study methodology of teaching to provide graduate students with an educational experience that enhances their problem analysis and presentation skills, while exposing them to real-life health services administration issues. Graduate Programs in Health Administration, Business Administration and Public Health are invited to form a team of 1-3 students.

Approximately 20-25 student teams will be given a unique case study and are charged with applying their creativity, knowledge and experience to analyze the diverse and real situations facing the healthcare organization featured in the case. The teams are given the specific facts and raw data related to the case, from which they are expected to reach decisions as outlined in the case assignment. Past cases have been modeled after organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic, Catholic Health Initiatives, Trinity Health System, University of Maryland Medical System, HCA, UnitedHealth Group, G. E. Healthcare, and most recently Catholic Health Partners. The teams present their case findings and recommendations before panels of judges representing leaders in the healthcare field, corporate sponsors and academia.

 

How does the Competition Work?

Graduate Programs in Health Administration and related fields form teams of one to three students.

All participating student teams shall be composed of at least one (1), preferably more, African American students.

Three weeks prior to the Competition each team receives the case study to analyze and form recommendations.

During the Competition, each team has twenty (20) minutes to present their analysis and recommendations, which is followed by a ten (10)minute questions and answer period.

Presentations are made before a panel of judges representing leaders in the health care field, corporate sponsors and academia.
