For the second year in a row, Tash and I are privileged to accompany the case competition team from Cornell to the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The UAB Health Administration Case Competition provides graduate students from CAHME-accredited health administration programs an opportunity to put what they have learned into practice with a real-life, real-time case. It is designed to be a capstone experience for the graduate school experience.

Student teams from around the country present their recommendations before a national team of judges. The first, second and third place teams receive cash awards. The 7th Annual Health Administration Case Competition will be hels from February 27 to March 1, 2013.

1st Place: Rush University
2nd Place: Army-Baylor University
3rd Place: Virginia Commonwealth University

Finalists: University of Central Florida, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and University of Iowa.

Honorable Mention: Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, St. Louis University, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, and University of South Carolina.
