Updated Residency Rumble Information

  • You will compete as individuals rather than teams. May the best resident WIN!
  • You can compete from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Rather than using the handheld keypads that we’ve used for years, you will use your cell phones as response pads this year.
  • You will hear the announcements and view the questions on a Zoom Session on your laptop. You will join with the link from the Saturday 8PM Residency Rumble Agenda item on the conference website. You will play the game, submitting your responses using your phone as a response keypad. So you WILL NEED 2 DEVICES. We do recommend using a laptop to view the Zoom session rather than a cell phone, but a tablet will also work fine. You can only hear the instructions and announcements and see the Leaderboard, in the Zoom session on your laptop…not from your phone.
  • Once you are in the Zoom session, you will be shown a QR code that you will scan with the Camera App on your phone to log into the response keypad. BE SURE to login with your EMAIL ADDRESS and FULL NAME so that IF you win, we can get your prize sent to you.
  • Speed in submitting your responses is once again a big factor. Accurate correct responses will get you higher scores and there is a 30 second 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. No other advance sign up is needed.
    Residents SHOULD register for and attend this event anyway. It is put on FOR you and it‘s FREE!
  • To make the Rumble a better educational experience and mini-board review for you, for the first time, we had teachers from the Western University College of Podiatric Medicine, Drs. Jarrod Shapiro, Chandler Hubbard and Kevin Lu write explanations for why the correct answers are correct.
