Medical Student's Competitions at the TXACP 2014 Annual Meeting

Six student members presented their clinical vignettes in conjunction with the annual meeting on Saturday morning. Outstanding presentations were made by Meagan Sebring, Baylor College of Medicine; Justin Price, TAMHSC; Andrea Gasper, UT Houston;  Huan Xu, UTHSCSA; Susan Owens, UTMB; Lindsay Ripley, UTSW.

Andrea Gasper won first place in the competition with her vignette, “Classic but Uncommon: A Case of Chronic Lead Toxicity in Modern America." Andrea will automatically advance to Boston to compete at the national level during the ACP Internal Medicine 2015. Congratulations to all of our winners and presenters in the competition.

35 students competed in the student poster competition. Taking first place in the medical student's poster competition was Josephine Thinwa, UTHSCSA, with her poster, "Blindness from syphilis: Back to the Dark Ages?” Due to the outstanding quality of the posters this year, we are awarding two second-place winners. Charis Santini, from TAMHSC, placed second in the competition with poster, “Beyond Typhoid Mary: The Sophistication of Salmonella Typhi,” as did Joseph Allencherril, from BCM with the poster titled, “ECMO saves from the Graves.” Congratulations to all of our winners and presenters in the competition.

Special thanks goes to Karen Szauter, MD, FACP, and Eugene Stokes, MD, FACP who serve as committee chairs and organize all of the student's competitions for the annual meeting
