Residency Rumble - Academic Contest
About the Rumble
Saturday, September 26, 2020 - 8 PM EDT
The FIRST VIRTUAL Residency Rumble
Skip a Residency Rumble just because we’re running the event online? NO WAY!
We WILL be running the Residency Rumble this year at the PRESENT Residency Education Virtual Summit Combined 2020. It’ll be run as a virtual event from the online streaming event website, just like another lecture session, from 8-9PM Saturday Evening.
Differences this Year
- You will compete as individuals this year rather than teams. May the best resident WIN!
- Rather then using the handheld keypads that we’ve used for years, you will use your phones as response pads this year
- You can compete from anywhere where you have an Internet connection. You will view the questions on a Zoom Session and respond using your phone as a keypad. So you WILL NEED 2 DEVICES. We do recommend using a laptop to view the session rather than a cell phone, but a tablet will work fine.
- Speed isn’t as big a factor this year in boosting your score as it’s been in the past. Due to Internet latency, that feature isn’t available in the online version. Accurate correct responses will get you higher scores and there is a time limit to submit your response, which you will see displayed on the screen.
- As usual, you must be registered for the meeting to participate in the Rumble. It’ll be accessed from within the virtual conference portal, so you must be logged into the conference to participate.
Residents SHOULD register for and attend this event anyway. It’s put on FOR you and it's FREE!
There will be 5 prizes awarded this year for the residents with the top 5 scores:
- 1st Prize ► $1,000
- 2nd Prize ► $500
- 3rd Prize ► $250
- 4th Prize ► $150
- 5th Prize ► $100
