The HPM Healthcare Delivery and Management Case Challenge creates opportunities for students to apply classroom learning to a real-world healthcare case and executive management presentation. Teams of 3-5 students from various professional schools at Columbia—Public Health, Business, Medicine and Public Affairs—prepare a comprehensive analysis and consulting presentation for a healthcare case. Teams present their analysis and recommendations to an expert panel of faculty and industry professionals who act as judges. Winning teams from preliminary rounds advance to the championship round, and winners of the competition receive prizes. 


While teams can include members from the same school, we encourage teams to draw on members and resources from other schools as the case will require management, policy, and clinical/outcomes analyses. Further, the analysis should not be constrained by the information articulated in the case. We expect teams to think outside the box in terms of issues and impacts of case solutions on the client organization.
