GI Jeopardy Competiton

In 2004, the American College of Gastroenterology introduced a new program called GI Jeopardy. This exciting program is designed as a friendly competition among GI training programs across the country.

The competition consists of two stages, an online preliminary round where all GI programs are invited to compete and a final round where two person teams from the top five scoring programs will compete in front of a live audience at the ACG Postgraduate Course. Travel expenses will be covered by ACG for the 5 finalist teams.

Preliminary Round Via On-Line Test – Starts July 7, 2014

Each training program will be provided a unique password. The program will use that password to log into the system. The test will consist of 55 questions on a variety of GI diseases and organs. This preliminary round is designed as a group session. While there is no limit to the number of trainees who may participate in this group answering the on-line questions, two rules apply — (1) only fellows-in-training may participate, and (2) each training program’s group will be permitted to take the test only one time. A composite score will be calculated for each training program, and finalists selected, based on the number of correct responses and additionally factoring in the completion time. Programs will have the opportunity to complete part of the test and come back to do the rest without a time penalty. However, once a question appears on screen, the clock begins to run.

Deadline for completion of the preliminary round is August 4, 2014 at 11:59 p.m.

Final Round at ACG Meeting, October 18, 2014

The five highest scoring training programs from the on-line preliminary round will be invited to send teams of two trainees each to compete in the final round at the ACG Postgraduate Course being held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 18-19, 2014. All participants will be invited to attend the entire ACG Postgraduate Course. The final competition will consist of two rounds of questions before a live audience. In the first round, all five teams will compete against one another. Round two will consist of the three top scoring teams of that round. Each member of the team that wins the competition will be awarded $1,000 toward a round trip ticket to the 2015 ACG Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course in Honolulu, Hawaii plus a trophy for the program.

We encourage your program to participate in this fun and educational program.

A link to the online competition site, along with the log in information, will be sent to each program director and coordinator on July 7, 2014. If you have any questions about the program, contact Maria Susano at the ACG office (301-263-9000 or msusano@gi.org).
