Residents win American College of Physicians National Associates Competition

Internal Medicine 2013 logoAbstracts submitted by two resident physicians in the Department of Internal Medicine were selected as winners in the 2013 National Associates Competition of the American College of Physicians (ACP). The top 10 winning entries each in the National Clinical Vignette and Research Paper competitions are featured each year at the ACP's premier scientific meeting, Internal Medicine.

A research paper submitted by Rohit Kedia, D.O., entitled "Weight Loss in Subclinical Hyperthyroidism," was among the 10 research abstracts selected as winners in the 2013 National Associates Competition. 

An abstract submitted by Ofor Ewelukwa, M.B.B.S., entitled “A Case of Xanthogranulomatous Cholecystitis Mimicking Gallbladder Cancer,” was among the 10 clinical vignette abstracts selected as winners in the 2013 ACP National Associates Competition.

As winners, both Kedia and Ewelukwa have been invited to give a podium presentations during the Internal Medicine 2013 Meeting in San Francisco April 11-13.

“To have two out of 20 winning abstracts in this national competition come from our program is a great way to get national recognition for our program and for Boonshoft School of Medicine,” says Glen Solomon, M.D., chair and professor of internal medicine.
