SURGICAL JEOPARDY: TESTIMONIALS
Young doctors from Palermo to Milan, from Verona, Siena, Rome and Parma answered sparkling questions of the 2015 edition of the Surgical Jeopardy of the American College of Surgeon Italian Chapter, held in Milan the last October during 117th Congress of Italian Society of Surgery. It was a funny, exciting, never boring and inspiring match and a nice opportunity to meet and discuss with other colleagues and for playing and testing themselves in a nice competition, that was organized really well. I highly recommend it to all, rack your brains too as we did!!
Finally, icing on the cake, a special prize went to the winner (the writer of this message modestly….): an amazing course of Laparoscopic Surgery in AIMS Academy - Niguarda Ca’Granda Hospital in Milan, an excellent training center for young surgeons.

I'm a fifth year resident in general surgery from Rome and I've had the chance to participate at the first-ever Italian-Chapter ACS Surgical Jeopardy: what an experience! I have to admit that at first I was a bit worried by the competition, I was afraid that it would have been the umpteenth examination in the long road to become a surgeon.
