EmergiQuiz at the AAP NCE
EmergiQuiz is a case-based presentation that challenges the audience to think through the differential diagnosis for a complex case. Each year, 4 pediatric emergency medicine fellows are chosen from a large pool of submissions to present a case.
First, fellows present “Part 1”. During this portion of the presentation, the fellow describes the presentation to the emergency department (ED) and initial studies obtained.
Next, another fellow, who has received only this portion of the case in advance, takes the information the team had in the ED and works through the differential diagnosis During “Part 2”. They then make the best guess on the final diagnosis.
Finally, the original fellow presenter returns to present “Part 3”, which continues the case after admission to the time of final diagnosis, followed by a brief review of the final disease process.
Cases presented are chosen by a panel of judges. After the selected cases are presented, the audience votes on the best case presentation, as well as the best discussion of an unknown case.
