    Published: 10/30/2013

    For the third consecutive year, a team of residents from the Department of Medicine at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia won the Pennsylvania Chapter, Southeastern Regional Championship in the American College of Physicians’ Doctor’s Dilemma™ competition.

    Team Einstein, which hosted the medical jeopardy-style event on their campus, beat out nine internal medicine teams representing University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson University, Abington Memorial Hospital, Crozer Medical Center, Pennsylvania Hospital, Drexel University College of Medicine, Lankenau Hospital, Temple University Hospital, and Christiana Hospital.

    “I am so proud of the team of extraordinary residents in our Department of Internal Medicine Residency Program,” said Glenn Eiger, MD, FACP, Associate Chair and Program Director of Einstein’s Department of Medicine. “It’s a real privilege to teach this brilliant group of physicians.”

    The next step for Team Einstein is to compete in the American College of Physicians’ state championship taking place on December 7 in Hershey, PA, where they will compete against two other PA regional winners. If they win in Hershey, they will advance to the national finals where Team Einstein is the two-time defending champion. Team Einstein has won the National American College of Physicians’ Doctor’s Dilemma™ competition a total of five times.
