Surgical Jeopardy is a surgical knowledge adaptation of the famous television game show Jeopardy! and has been a resounding hit and staple for nearly a decade. Resident teams representing programs across the state compete to demonstrate their surgical knowledge and win the title of Surgical Jeopardy Champion. What makes Surgical Jeopardy so special is its ability to promote resident participation in ACS activities and to motivate learning in the spirit of good-natured and friendly competition.

In accordance with the ACCME Accreditation Criteria, the American College of Surgeons must ensure that anyone in a position to control the content of the educational activity has disclosed all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest. Therefore, it is mandatory that both the program planning committee and speakers complete disclosure forms. Members of the program committee were required to disclose all financial relationships and speakers were required to disclose any financial relationship as it pertains to the content of the presentations. The ACCME defines a ‘commercial interest’ as “any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients”. It does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. The ACCME considers “relevant” financial relationships as financial transactions (in any amount) that may create a conflict of interest and occur within the 12 months preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the educational activity. Faculty disclosures will be made available at the time of the meeting.
Seeking commercial support. Appropriate acknowledgement will be given to all supporters at the time of meeting.
