The learning doesn’t end after the day’s meetings have concluded. But you won’t find stacks of papers, books, and presentations. What you will find is challenging medical conundrums, wacky graphics, fun and games with a little pop culture thrown in for good measure. It’s the EMRA Quiz Show!
Where: CORD Academic Assembly – San Antonio, TX
When: Sunday, April 22 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm
About the Competition
This competition is all about the residency program that comes out on top after five rounds of questions. Who knows their stuff and can think fast on their feet? Each round has five or six tough medical questions – and you can’t really study for this! Put together a team of four of your smartest, most versatile and “knows-a-little-about-everything” residents!
Are we serious about the medical knowledge? We sure are. Are we serious about how it’s presented? No, we’re not! This is a popcorn-throwing, crank-up-the-music, guaranteed-noisiest event you’ll attend at Academic Assembly. And dare we say, the most fun.

How to Compete?
Every year, EMRA holds a lottery to Call for Teams. Look for news in the monthly
e-newsletter, What’s Up in Emergency Medicine; ads in EM Resident, and the CORD e-newsletter.
The previous year’s champions are always asked back to defend their championship. There’s room for twelve teams and lots of audience each year.
This is a don’t miss event – it’s rollicking good fun! The more, the merrier, so if you’re not a team, you should be in audience.
We recruit our judges from the EMRA Board of Directors. Since they’re not eligible to join a team, they absolutely refuse not to join in on the fun!
- Bragging rights!
- We ask each team to bring five gifts to the event that represent their residency or city. The winning team goes home with all the gifts. Nothing big – just a small token. We’ve seen city snow globes; cheese trays; baseball caps with team logos; tees with your city’s motto. Sometimes the gifts are as wacky as the Quiz Show and that’s all part of the fun!
