Medical Jeopardy Team Takes Third Place in National Competition
May 20, 2008
A team of internal medicine residents from Drexel University College of Medicine recently placed third in the nation at the American College of Physicians' national medical jeopardy competition, Doctor's Dilemma.
Thirty-six teams competed at the event, which was held May 15-17 in Washington, D.C. The Drexel team, which had previously won several regional competitions, represented the state of Pennsylvania. At the National Championships, the team sailed through the first round, beating New York, Jordan, and Puerto Rico. They then moved onto the semi-finals, beating out eight teams to compete in the finals as one of the top four teams in the country. Drexel held the lead the entire game, but answered the final question incorrectly and finished behind South Illinois and Southern California.
Congratulations to Drexel team members: Joseph Vadakara, Gayathri Nagaraj, Vaibhab Sahni, and Petros Grivas, and to their chief resident and coach Archana Gowda.
