Knowledge Bowl

Get ready for a fun, fast-paced and competitive session based on the award winning game show Jeopardy! Each year, rheumatology fellows from around the world are challenged with questions on a wide range of rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease topics. Just like Jeopardy!, contestants are required to provide their answers in the form of a question. Teams compete against other universities and institutions for exciting prizes, including complimentary registration and housing for the 2019 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting.

See the 2017 teams who competed for the Knowledge Bowl trophy.
