This year’s VOS Resident Quiz Bowl featured the addition of two more residency programs. The meeting was held in our nation’s capital, home to Georgetown and Walter Reed. They joined the field along with defending champion UVA, inaugural champion VCU, and second time participant Navy. With five teams, the buzzer action proved crucial and VCU and Walter Reed came out hot on the buzzers. Navy was also quick to the trigger, and unfortunately dug themselves a big hole going into the second round, as UVA capitalized on some spelling errors to finish the first round.
The residents displayed their knowledge of hand, oncology and feet in the second round, as well as a Jeopardy favorite ‘Before and After’ category featuring amalgams of orthopedics and common knowledge. There was also a sharp display around Brown Liquids setting up final Jeopardy. Unfortunately, Navy had a negative score going into Final Jeopardy, but Walter Reed took advantage, correctly naming 16 of 17 muscular attachments to the scapula to take home the trophy in their first attempt.
Thank you to the participating residents and institutions listed below for another entertaining event during the opening reception. We hope to see everyone next year as Walter Reed attempts to defend their title, VCU and UVA hope to add another title to their cabinet, and Navy and Georgetown hope to break through.
