PA Student Medical Challenge Bowl

Remember the game show “Jeopardy”?  Here’s how the PA Student Medical Challenge Bowl works:

  • Competition is inter-collegiate: to the extent possible, each team will consist of students from every PA program in North Carolina. Teams are determined on game day, based upon who is in attendance.
  • Responses to all questions require a question prefix (e.g. “What is… or Who is…”). Only one response per question per team.
  • Questions must be answered within 10 seconds, and points are deducted for incorrect answers. Teams “buzz-in” to answer questions as a group. The team that accumulates the most points wins.

NCAPA 2019 PA Student Medical Challenge Bowl!

On Saturday, May 4th, PA students from all over North Carolina gathered at the Stead Center to attend the 2019 Student Medical Challenge Bowl.

Students were divided into six inter-collegiate teams so that members could network with PA students from other programs. Students tested their medical knowledge and fun was had by all. All four teams played both rounds 1 and 2 with the two leading teams playing the third and final round.

As always, the names the teams came up with were creative and fun. This year, we had Hungry Hungry HIPAA, We Bring the Paincreas, Syncope or Swim, and ”TB”D, with Syncope or Swim for the win!

Hungry Hungry HIPAA: Lawrence Luk, Duke; Allison Blaylock, Campbell; Breanne Lane, Duke; Patrick Whitman, Duke; Cayla Culbreth, ECU
We Bring the Paincreas: Carlos Cano, Campbell, Miriam Rollason, Duke; Paige Gower, ECU, Kristen Razner, Duke; Chase Pennel, Campbell 
Syncope or Swim: Olivia Brownley, Duke; Laura Okolie, Duke; Krissy Ngo, Duke; Casey Rodgers, Elon; Kristina Kerr, Campbell; Joseph McCracken, UNC 
”TB”D: Kyle Reynolds, Campbell; Carolina Anzola-Riegel, ECU; Sally Pohlman, Duke; Chad Hess, Duke; Madison Schmoeller, Campbell; Naomi Landry, Elon

Another exciting and fun Challenge Bowl, readying our NC PA Students for the National Challenge Bowl at the AAPA Conference. Best of luck to all!
