Dermpath BowlMar. 8, 2018, 9:09 AM
Teams of residents representing teaching hospitals from around the country competed in the Dermpath Bowl recently in San Diego. In this single-elimination competition, a fixture of the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, teams of residents are given three minutes to correctly identify three pathological specimens under a microscope. Competing for a third consecutive year, Vanderbilt’s dermatology residents reached the Elite 8. Pictured, from left, are Nick Frank, MD, Zach Jones, MD, Kayla McNiece, MD, Lilly Zhu, MD, Annie Wester, MD, Lee Wheless, MD, Ali Seamens, MD, Brandon Danford, MD.
