School of Medicine: Creighton Team Named Doctor’s Dilemma Champions

Creighton University recently competed in the American College of Physicians (ACP) Arizona Chapter Doctor’s Dilemma competition.

“ACP Doctor’s Dilemma is a jeopardy-style game which tests students’ and residents’ medical knowledge across a wide range of topics in Internal Medicine and medicine subspecialties,” says Jaya Raj, MD, competition team advisor and professor in Creighton’s School of Medicine, Phoenix Campus.

The Creighton student team was comprised of three third-year medical students: Dorothy K. (team captain), Samuel B., and Haley B. They competed against the student teams from the University of Arizona, Mayo Clinic, and A.T. Still University. Creighton University also had a resident team, whose members were Anthony V. PGY-3 (team captain), Ashish S. PGY-3, and Abdulbaril O. PGY-2.

Creighton took home the championship, winning first place in the medical student round with a 1,000 point lead. The resident team won first place in the qualifying round and second place in the final round.

“Both the student team and the resident team displayed an impressive fund of knowledge and performed incredibly well under pressure.  I am so proud of all of them,” said Raj.
