Congratulations to our ACP Winners!
November 3, 2013
Every year the Society for the American College of Physicians (ACP) holds an annual regional conference for internal medicine physicians and residents. The meeting also consists of three contests: a medical jeopardy competition and two poster competitions: a clinical vignette category and research & quality improvement category.
This past weekend our Stanford residents took first place in the medical jeopardy contest and clinical vignette poster contest! We finished second in the research & quality improvement poster contest!
Congratulations to our winners (pictured and named below) and the whole program for their support! We’re all very proud of you!
In this session, we shared our experiences with teaching the physical exam at the bedside. Our participants got into groups and came up with their own bedside teaching example to share with everyone.
This year, the medical student interest group created a “Clinical Pearl Award” that challenged medical students to create a clinical pearl through an essay, a step-by-step photo guide or a video demonstration.
Dr. Verghese was invited to speak at the TED Global in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2011. He spoke about the importance of the physical exam and how we physicians are in danger of losing the connection with our patients as we focus more on technology and the electronic medical record.
