Know Pain, Know Gain Competition:

This competition starts with a rapid-fire elimination round that brings the number of contestants from 10 to 3, finalists will then participate in a mock patient counseling session.  Judges develop a patient case, and a mock patient will interact with each finalist for up to seven minutes.  Click here for more information on this competition!
