The CPC finals provides attendees the opportunity to test their own diagnostic skills as they listen to the final round of cases and discussions from the winners of the regional competitions held the previous May. Cases will be presented by emergency medicine residents and then discussed by residency program attending physicians. Match wits with faculty members from opposing programs who will use patients’ presenting symptoms and diagnostic test results to arrive at a final diagnosis.
