TPS is currently accepting 2-4 member teams that include at least one intern to participate in the 2017 Jacobi Jug Competition in conjunction with the 2017 TPS Annual Meeting.

The competition will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 3:45-5PM as an approved CME session. Sign-up soon as space is limited.  We suggest choosing a “team lead” at your program to coordinate those interested and then send a list with the names, emails and levels to the TPS Membership Services Manager at crystal.healey@txpeds.org. Due to the high level of interest, to determine which resident programs will participate, there will be a “lottery” drawing on Friday September 8th. Six teams will be selected for the competition this year. The winning team will receive trophies to take back to their program!
