Resident’s (Rock 'n Roll) Bowl Competition

Moderated by Joe Presti, Jr., MD

Last year's Inaugural launch of this unique event really rocked! Three teams will compete together in one jeopardy style game show. You can guess the theme (fun!) as we unwind from the day and enjoy happy hour action with our great rock star resident teams. The winning team will represent the Western Section at the AUA’s Annual Meeting Resident Bowl next year. Plan to attend this slightly "unconventional" event!
