MHA Students Compete at UAB Case Competition

For the second year, the Department of Health Policy & Management sent a team of MHA students to compete in the National Case Competition held at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The 2017 team members included Erin Catlin (MHA, 2018), Amy Gravelle (MHA, 2017) and Camaron Villecco (MHA, 2017).

The team had three weeks to analyze the case, conduct relevant research, develop a comprehensive strategy and prepare a 20-minute presentation for the competition. Gravelle summed up the experience saying, "This is an excellent opportunity to conduct a thorough analysis of a real problem in healthcare and apply it to a formal presentation."

Although the team spent countless hours preparing for the competition, they all agreed it was fun and worth the time invested. Villecco categorized it as a "wonderful experience." Catlin commented, "I had a great time getting to know my fellow teammates and MHA students from programs across the country."
