Jacobi Jug Competition

About the Jacobi Jug Competition:
Jacobi Jug is a fast-paced interactive competition that will review six key topics that physicians state they have a knowledge gap in and will include some discussion and education focused on these topics. TPS is currently accepting 2-4 member teams that include at least one intern to participate in the 2019 Jacobi Jug Competition in conjunction with the 2019 TPS Annual Meeting. The competition will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 3:45-5:00PM as an approved CME session.

*NEW THIS YEAR* Team Selection Process
We suggest choosing a “team lead” to serve as your point of contact for your program to coordinate those interested. The team lead would then send a list with the names, emails and levels to TPS Member Services Manager at crystal.healey@txpeds.org. Due to the high level of interest and to determine which resident programs will participate, all teams must submit their team members' names on or before Friday, August 16th.

Preliminary Rounds
Jacobi Jug will now consist of 2 preliminary rounds and one final round to encourage more extensive program involvement.

  • The two preliminary rounds will consist of 6 teams (or less depending on amount of team registrations). The winner of each preliminary round will then compete in the final round to determine a winner.
  • The winning team will receive trophies to take back to their program! Sign-up soon, as space is limited.
