Injecting a bit of fun into learning is proven to increase retention of information. With that in mind, the popular “Jenny and Keith White Are You Smarter Than a Junior Fellow?” session is returning to the 2018 ACOG Annual Meeting.
Inspired by the popular TV game show of a similar name, this event will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 pm on Friday in Exhibit Hall 5 at the Austin Convention Center.
Organizer and past host Kenneth H. Kim, MD, associate professor of gynecologic oncology at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, School of Medicine, said one of his favorite things about this event is that it highlights Junior Fellows from all of ACOG’s districts.
“In playing the game, we really showcase the strength of our Junior Fellows and build comradery and pride within each district,” Dr. Kim said.
The two-person teams in the contest are made up of physicians with a range of experience and leadership within the profession, both of which will vie for bragging rights. During the game, the panel of Junior Fellows will be there to help the contestants, should they struggle to answer questions. This year’s moderator is Rita Driggers, MD. This year’s contestants are Cynthia Brincat, MD, PhD; Eve Feinberg, MD; Larry Gilstrap, MD; and Patrice Weiss, MD.
Junior Fellow Days Begin Friday
Beyond the quiz event, Junior Fellows will find a plethora of sessions and events designed just for them during Junior Fellow Days.
On Friday afternoon, Junior Fellows will find help and advice in preparing for ABOG exams, including specific sessions on written and oral exams, and preparing case lists. Friday’s Junior Fellow events take place from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Fairmont Hotel’s Manchester EF room.
Saturday morning, Junior Fellows are invited to begin their day joining us for the Junior Fellow Breakfast Business Meeting from 7 to 8 am, and then explore the transition from training to practice with a series of discussions on topics such as contracts and financial planning for young physicians from 8 to 11:30 am in Palm Park A and B at the Fairmont.
