Every year since 2012, ASN has done the FIT bowl to inspire fellows to compete and learn nephrology in a fun and competitive way. Usually, there are 2 teams of various fellows from different fellowship programs mixed competing for the winning spot. First round is usually Case Based debates( Mystery case) run by Hitesh H Shah and myself and then a fun filled Jeopardy round with James Simon and team.
This year, there is going to be some changes. It will move to a 2 days process to allow for more game time. The competition will start on Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 10:30am-12:30pm in the Scientific Exposition floor, Hall A of the San Diego Convention Center.
The overall competition schedule is as follows:
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2018
10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PDT
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2018
