Clinical Case Competition for Trainees
Calling all residents and medical students! Cases will be presented on Thursday, September 28th, at 4:15pm in the University Guest House Alpine Theater. Each case should present interesting diagnostic images and a short patient history followed by a discussion of how a diagnosis was made. Each presenter will have 3 minutes to present his or her case via a powerpoint presentation. Faculty judges will then have 1-2 minutes for follow-up questions. Judges will score your presentation based on your logic, clarity, and overall presentation skills. The difficulty of the diagnosis is not a factor in judging.
