Four top residency programs vie for highest score.

Noon – 1:00 pm (CT) | Tuesday, October 3
Music City Center, Ballroom A2

The Academic Bowl this year will be a "Champions Tournament" inviting four top winning otolaryngology residency programs to return to the event to compete once more! This popular annual event is designed to foster a spirit of competition in a clinically oriented battle of the brains among residents. Interactive, multiple-choice questions are generated through the AAO-HNSF Education Committees and are designed to test residents' knowledge in different otolaryngology subspecialties, the business of medicine, and new clinical research findings. The residency team with the highest score will win a prize and reign supreme!
