Student Case Study Competition
Students are invited to compete on a team to solve a healthcare case study. Teams will be assigned by the case study coordinators. Teams will have four to five students from various schools, and will be a mix of undergraduate and graduate students. Attendance at the conference is required in order to participate in the student case study competition.
More information will be available in the fall.
Students volunteers for the SHS conference will receive a discounted registration rate. Please contact Bill Gibbs for additional information.
Student mentors at this year’s conference play an important role in helping to orient students to the conference environment, educate students on opportunities within SHS, and provide wise advice for their futures. As a mentor you are asked to contact your students before the conference, meet with them during the welcome reception as well as breakfast and/or lunch during the conference. Depending on the number of mentors who sign up, you will have between two to four students to meet during the conference. Thank you in advance for your interest and participation.
