Clinical Vignette

A clinical vignette is a report of one or more cases that illustrates a new disease entity, or a prominent or unusual clinical feature of an established disease. It may include a summary of pertinent patient history, physical findings, laboratory data, or management description.

Andy Diehl On Being a Doctor Award Competition

Named in honor of Dr. Andy Diehl, former Governor of the Texas Chapter, in recognition of his contributions to the Texas Chapter as a leader, educator and internist. Dr. Diehl was an avid reader of medical literature and was lauded by colleagues as a dedicated teacher and physician. He served 35 years on the faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.

Doctor's Dilemma

Doctors’ Dilemma is much like the TV show Jeopardy.  Questions are presented as answers and teams buzz in to answer the question in the form of a question.  There is a moderator asking the questions and each team has a buzzer. The team that buzzes in first has the chance to answer the question and depending on whether or not their answer is correct, they may/may not have the opportunity to pick a category and advance onto the next question.
