Surgical Jeopardy is a surgical knowledge adaptation of the famous television game show Jeopardy! and has been a resounding hit and staple for nearly a decade. Resident teams representing programs across the state compete to demonstrate their surgical knowledge and win the title of Surgical Jeopardy Champion. What makes Surgical Jeopardy so special is its ability to promote resident participation in ACS activities and to motivate learning in the spirit of good-natured and friendly competition.
