ACP Missouri Chapter meeting winners

“Many of us enjoyed a busy weekend at the Missouri ACP meeting at the Lake of the Ozarks. Next week I will send out a link to some photos.

Student Hari Raman W4 was presented with the ACP Clerkship Award and Eunhye Oak W3 was presented with the ACP Physical Diagnosis Award.

The Doctor’s Dilemma team of Taylor Geisman, Aisling Doyle and Andrew Jallouk (coached by Jonas Noe, Stephanie Velloze and Emily Fondahn) WON the state competition for the 3rd year in a row. They will go to the national ACP competition next April in Philadelphia.
