  BIO-MEDICAL COMPETITION

OBSTETRICIAN OB/GYN - SURGEON - PEDIATRICS 
MEDICINE - PSYCHIATRY


General Information:The Bio-Medical Competition will provide students the opportunity to learn about the different bio-medical specialty areas.
In medical school, there are five areas that you study which we are asking the students to identify one area of specialty.  When one becomes interested in the bio-medical field, they find many interesting career options that are available and impact the lives of their community, family, and friends.


Program: Eight teams of 5 (high school students) will research one of the specific bio-medical specialty fields listed below.  From there, they will then write a research paper with a maximum of three pages, in addition to preparing a brochure, a web page, and a poster board pages display.  At the competition, after the judge scores each group, the team's knowledge will be tested while playing a Jeopardy game based on a set of questions previously provided to each team.  Scoring of the Jeopardy game will be incorporated in the overall competition scoring to determine the winners


Training Workshops: All workshops are held on the 2nd Saturdays of each month beginning in October through January ( 9am - 11am) at
Prince George's Community College, Upper Marlboro, MD 20774.

Schools:  2017-2018 competitions are among eight Prince George's County Middle and High Schools  - so get your team together.


Each team will choose one of the following topics for research:

-   Obstetrician (OB/GYN)
-   Surgeon
-   Pediatrics
-   Medicine
-   Psychiatry



Prizes:

  • 1st Place:   Each member of the team will win $100.00
  • 2nd Place:  Each member of the team will win $50.00
  • 3rd Place:   Each member of the team will win $25.00


Business and government support:Several professionals, from the medical industry, will be recruited to assist as instructors, mentors, and technical advisors. This project will significantly impact the community by bringing attention to awareness/diagnosis/treatment of Disease.  Current supporters include MedStar Medical Group Primary Care, the awareness/diagnosis/treatment of amputation.  Current supporters include the Black Commissioned Officers Advisory Group (U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps), and Care First.
