MindGames is APA’s national residency team competition. Remember College Bowl? Do you like Jeopardy? This competition is intended to be a fun, educational activity that challenges the residents on patient care and medical knowledge.
Here is how it works:
A preliminary round will take place the last two weeks of February (Feb. 16-27, 2015). To prepare for this competition, the Training Director and/or Chair need to select three (3) residents who will form your program team. The selected residents MUST be APA members to qualify. Your team (together) will take a timed online examination - 150 multiple choice questions in 60 minutes. Questions will follow the ABPN Part I content outline. The three highest scoring teams with the fastest posted time will advance to compete in the live national competition. The winning teams will be announced at the AADPRT meeting in March.
