The Junior Fellows won the 2015 Gerald and Barbara Holzman Stump the Professors session Tuesday for the second straight year.
Top medical professors were put on the spot and asked to make the correct diagnosis from a real case from a Junior Fellow’s file. The crowd saw the professors’ think their way through each case — and get a little frustrated.
“You’re giving me a blank look,” Sharon T. Phelan, MD, FACOG, told Andrea M. Montgomery, MD, University of Connecticut. “You’re being a board examiner.”
Dr. Phelan, Molly A. Brewer, MD, FACOG, Anthony R. Gregg, MD, FACOG, and Lynn M. Westphal, MD, FACOG, couldn’t come up with the correct diagnosis of diaphragmatic eventration in Dr. Montgomery’s case, nor in the cases from Shadi Rezai, MD, Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center (gestational gigantomastia), and Martin L. Hechanova, MD, Southwestern Medical School (ruptured interstitial ectopic pregnancy).
The professors did come up with the correct diagnosis for the cases of Allison Gockley, MD, Bringham & Women’s Hospital (gallstones), and Christina R. Washington, MD, Pennsylvania Hospital (leftover material from an embolization).
