Team Of Residents At Local Medical Center Win National Competition
By Kim Glovas
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A team of medical residents from Albert Einstein Medical Center have won a national game-style contest.
It’s called the American College of Physicians “Doctor’s Dilemna” and it’s styled after the “Jeopardy” game show.
Team member Praveen Ramakrishnan (4th from the left in the above photo) says the game actually is like the real life of medicine today — it’s a team effort:
“Every team member contributes in his or her own area of expertise. That’s how we had our divisions clearly made out. So if I was good in a few sub-specialities, the other two teammates were good in a few of their own, and then we would chip in and each member contributed and I think that went a long way for the team.”
The final category was Neurology and the final clue was “cause of cognitive disturbance and magnetic gait.”
Do you know the answer? Team Einstein did.
They were the only ones to correctly answer “what is normal pressure hydrocephalus.”
This is the 20th year for the competition and team Einstein has won the title six times.
