2014 Chapter Doctor's Dilemma Competition
The Chapter Doctor's Dilemma contest was held on Saturday, February 1. We fortunately escaped the snow this year and had our usual highly educational and exciting afternoon. We send our sincere thanks to the CRAB members, and especially the Co-chairs, Drs. Tahir Mehmood (Franklin Square), Andrew Ofosu (Harbor Hospital), and Kristine Yumul (Sinai) who went out of their way to ensure that all of the teams could participate, and that the event ran smoothly the entire afternoon. We owe a special debt and thank you to Dr. David Zolet, our Dilemma advisor, who reviewed and edited all the questions with Dr. Janaki Deepak, who was unable to attend this year due to a prior family commitment. Although she was not present in person, her presence was certainly felt. We also want to thank our judges and moderators who dedicated their Saturday afternoon to ensuring that the contest was educational, fair, and entertaining. These included Drs. Sanjay Desai, Stephanie Detterline, Phil Dittmar, Paul Foster, Sapna Kuehl, Lucia Ponor, William Shimeall, and Richard Williams.
Every year, this event seems to have a "twist" to its ending. This year was no different, as the last and final question of the contest actually determined the winner. Congratulations to Drs. Naresh Bhandari, Siddharth Dugar, Ji Yon Kwon, and Rihab Sharara, our first place winners from St. Agnes Hospital, who actually could say ... "We are going to Disneyworld!" as this year's meeting is taking place in Orlando, Florida in mid-April. Congratulations to our 2nd place winners, Drs. Kornelija Colovic, Priyanka Iyer, Ivana Milojevic, and Aman Opneja from Sinai Hospital, as well as our third place finalists from Harbor Hospital - Drs. Nishanthika Navaratmarajah, Ugchukwu Ozumba, Ala-Eddin Sagar and Ruchita Simoes.
The Maryland ACP is fortunate to have faculty and chief residents committed to making this event the highlight of our annual Chapter meeting.
Enjoy some photos from the event, and thanks to all who participated!
