What is the Resident Rumble?
The AAOS Resident Rumble is an exciting, no-holds-barred, online trivia competition that pits residency programs from across the country against one another. The games are a combination of orthopaedic-based trivia, pop culture trivia, and fun competitions.
When are the events?
The competition will be held on Wednesday evenings in April and May (Apr. 7, 14, 21, 28 and May 5, 12, 19, 26) from 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. Three teams of four will compete against each other, by division, in this event sponsored by DePuy Synthes. The winners of each night will compete in a championship match on the last Wednesday of the respective month.
In August, the April and May winners will participate in a final championship event with 2020 winners UT Houston to determine who will win the first and second place prizes. PGY5 residents that participated in the April or May events will need to find residents to take their place in the final match.
