About SFHEF Case Competition:

The South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum, the regional chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executive (ACHE), has an annual Student Case Competition. These competitions feature various student teams, both in undergraduate and masters level, representing local universities who present a case study. These universities are members of the ACHE Higher Education Network. The student teams are partnered with and mentored by C-Suite executives from various healthcare organizations. This format was designated a best practice by both ACHE and the Association of University Public Health Administration (AUPHA). 

The student teams are then judged by a panel of C-Suite individuals, which gives them an opportunity to garner further exposure to this level of executives. The event is held every spring and has been held every year since 2002. The topic changes each year to reflect the latest issues/challenges in our healthcare industry and this year the focus is Business Development. The teams are awarded a First, Second and Third Place for the presentations and there is a monetary prize given to the universities. The students will have the opportunity to attend a related career development educational event where the winners are announced. Winners are also invited to the SFHEF Annual Installation Dinner the following year.

Past Participant Commentary:

"The student case competition exposed the team to priceless hands-on experience in developing a healthcare business proposal by exploring various healthcare insurance payment models" - Germa Clarke, FIU, BHSA

"The 2016 case competition was more than a contest. It was the opportunity to develop long lasting relationships with fellow students and collaborate with afflunet executives; an experience that has helped launch my career into the health administrative field" - Tarah Scott, FAU, BHA

"A great way to put your skills to test, build relationships, and expand your knowledge of real healthcare needs."- Orlando Soto, FIU, HCMBA

"The case competition taught me on how to challenge myself. I also learned the true experience of networking and mentorship with those who have been in the healthcare field for some time" - Sasha Paleaz, FIU, BHSA

"A great learning experience overall. You are forced to learn a lot yourself in the build up, and learn a lot from other students presenting, mentors, professors, the judges, and the professionals themselves. The connections and networking did not really help me, I live far north and most of them are based in Broward. However the learning is tremendous, it puts you ahead of the rest, and it looks great on the resume" - Hussein Dawad, FAU, BHA
