Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky day for AZCOM students, as a group comprised of third- and fourth-year students won their division in the Doctor's Dilemma program at a meeting of the American College of Physicians (ACP) Arizona Chapter in Tucson, Arizona in November.

Students from the University of Arizona (Tucson and Phoenix campuses); A.T. Still University Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and School of Osteopathic Medicine, Arizona; and Creighton University also participated in the event.

The Doctor's Dilemma is a jeopardy-style event where teams are asked dozens of questions pertaining to little-known diseases, diagnostic techniques, and medical history in general internal medicine, as well as gastroenterology, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, endocrinology, rheumatology, and other subspecialty areas.

Fourth-year AZCOM student Karli Singer also took first place in the student poster division.
