Residency Rumble - Academic Contest

The Residency Rumble Will Take Place Saturday, August 13, 6-7:30PM EDT

The 20th Residency Rumble at the PRESENT Residency Education Summit East will be live and in-person.

For those of you who haven’t participated in one, the Residency Rumble is an academic game show consisting of 60 case-based questions generously provided by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine from actual past in-training exams. It serves as a fun competitive experience and also a valuable learning experience and board exam review. The winners receive cash prizes...plus the bragging rights to the title until next year's Rumble. Every resident should participate!

This year’s Residency Rumble is co-sponsored by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and Ortho Dermatologics.

Updated Residency Rumble Information

  • You will compete as individuals rather than teams. May the best resident WIN!
  • This year you will use your cell phones as response pads.
  • The Rumble will take place in the conference Lecture Hall. You will hear the announcements and view the questions on the projection screen. You will play the game, submitting your responses using your phone as a response keypad.
