The 2018 ASN Kidney Week Fellows in Training (FIT) Bowl Schedule

338 1

Every year since 2012, ASN has hosted the FIT bowl at Kidney Week to inspire fellows to compete and learn nephrology in a fun and competitive way. In previous years, there had been 2 teams of fellows from different fellowship programs  competing for the winning spot. The first round was “Case Based Debates” (mystery case) run by Hitesh H Shah and Kenar Jhaveri followed by a fun filled Jeopardy round with Jim Simon.

This year, we are making big changes and turning the competition into a 2-day process that will allow for even more learning opportunities. The games will begin on Thursday, October 25, 2018 from 10:30am-12:30pm in the Scientific Exposition floor, Hall A of the San Diego Convention Center.
