Boonshoft School of Medicine students win statewide Doctor’s Dilemma ® contest two years in a row

For the second consecutive year, three fourth-year Boonshoft School of Medicine students have won the statewide student Doctor’s Dilemma ® contest, a medical jeopardy competition.

Doug Laurain, Luke Andera, and Robert Beaulieu competed against other medical students teams in Doctor’s Dilemma ® at the 2013 Ohio Chapter Scientific Meeting of the American College of Physicians (ACP) in Columbus last fall.

The questions test medical students’ knowledge on uncommon or rare syndromes in internal medicine. This is the second year the Ohio ACP has offered Doctor’s Dilemma ® to medical students. WSU Boonshoft School of Medicine students Tom Bacon, Kate Baker, and Paul Blair won the 2012 competition.

Glen Solomon, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Internal Medicine, applauded their victory. “It shows how academically prepared Wright State medical students are compared with their peers at other medical schools,” Solomon said. “On virtually any measure, our students are at the top of their profession. Winning a statewide contest just helps to validate the exceptional quality of our medical students.”
