SimWARS at TCEP CONNECT 2019!

The SIMS Showdown is the medical student simulation competition at TCEP CONNECT 2019. Medical students of all levels and from all medical schools in Texas are invited to register a team comprised of five students.

The event will run from 1:00 – 5:00 pm on Sunday, March 24th as part of the Medical Student Track at TCEP CONNECT.

The competition is a single-elimination, bracket-style challenge. For each round, two teams will run the same case and will be judged by faculty from a variety of programs using standardized criteria. The cases utilized in the competition are original cases that will be faculty-reviewed and will include a variety of urgent/emergent pathologies in an emergency department setting. Students will have access to vitals, physical exam findings, labs, imaging, multidisciplinary consults, and varying degrees of patient history to determine the appropriate direction of management for the “patient” in the case. In addition, this year we have added a procedure track to the competition!

The teams of students will be primarily judged on their performance in team dynamics and communication but will secondarily earn points by identifying correct diagnostic and management steps.

IF YOU HAVE A TEAM AND WANT TO JOIN THE EVENT, PLEASE EMAIL NAVDEEP SEKHON AT sekhon@bcm.edu.

All students MUST be registered for the conference to be eligible for the competition. Students will be contacted during the week prior to the event about when to report for their first round. If you have any questions about the details of the event, please contact Navdeep Sekhon (sekhon@bcm.edu). Look forward to seeing you there!!
