PEMPix is not the only diagnosis competition that is held by the American Academy of Pediatrics‘ Section on Emergency Medicine. EmergiQuiz is a case-based presentation series that challenges the audience to think through the differential diagnosis for a complex case. Each year, four pediatric emergency medicine fellows are chosen from a large pool of submissions to present a case. Traditionally, these cases have been presented in person, two at a time during the Section on Emergency Medicine proceedings at the AAP National Conference and Exhibition. Because everything virtual this year we have elected to host EmergiQuiz online at EmergiQuiz.com. Marideth Rus, MD, MEd, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Emergency Medicine at Texas Children’s Hospital and the Baylor College of Medicine is the EmergiQuiz chair for the section and did an astounding job bringing everything together this year.
Part 3 of the 2020 EmergiQuiz case competition is live on EmergiQuiz.com! The original fellow presenter returns to present, and continues the case after admission to the time of final diagnosis, followed by a brief review of the final disease process. Members of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Emergency Medicine will vote on their favorite cases, and the winners will be announced at the virtual National Conference and Exhibition on October 3rd. I’ll be sure to share them here as well.
