Congratulations to Drexel University College of Medicine internal medicine residents Petros Grivas, Ashwani Gupta, Gaurav Mathur and Krishna Rao, who won the statewide Medical Jeopardy–Doctor's Dilemma Competition. Ably coached by Mohammed Islam, David Sass, and Joseph Vadakara, the Drexel/Hahnemann residents beat teams from Penn State and West Penn in the contest December 5 in Hershey. They had already taken first place among the 10 internal medicine residency programs in Southeastern Pennsylvania to get to the state level.

Our Pennsylvania state champions will travel to Toronto to compete in the nationals April 22-24.
