Resident Didactics & OLEMPICS Competition


Please join us for the 3rd Annual EM RESIDENT OL”EM”PICS COMPETITION at TCEP CONNECT 2020!

Resident teams from each EM training program in Texas will be competing for the GOLD! All participants must register for the resident portion of the conference, and each program must complete the form below. Registered residents will be able to attend all of Day 1 of the conference – Friday, April 3 – with faculty and includes multiple shorter high yield lectures pertinent to the practice of emergency medicine.
*Please note, for any residents who want to attend the Saturday programming as well, you will have to pay the resident rate twice for both days.

Attention Chief Residents and Program Directors: We Need You to Help!
The goal is to have a team of 8 residents from each residency program in Texas competing in the Olempics. Please put together a group from your program to participate! Groups of 10 or more receive a discounted registration price ($15 off per person). 

The OLEMPICS will be an amazing opportunity for EM residents to team build, strengthen leadership skills, learn about the business of EM and most importantly network and have tons of FUN! The format will be several “competitions” ranging from scavenger hunts, to case-based simulation competitions as well as some physical team Building races and competitions. Each residency team can only have EIGHT residents at each individual competition, but if more than eight residents attend they may all rotate into the competitions to help their residency compete.  

Teams that dress creatively will receive extra points! An OLEMPICS  shirt will be provided. The competition will be all day, Friday, April 3, 8:00am – 5:00pm, immediately followed by an awards ceremony at the Exhibit Hall Reception from 5:00 - 6:30pm. Residency programs need a minimum of eight residents from their program to participate and will receive more detailed information at a later date. 

*Group Registrations for 10 or more Residents – If you have ten or more people and would like to do a group registration (one payment for all registrants), you will receive a discount of $15 off per person. Please email Annette Mitrosz at [email protected] for more details.

OLEMPICS RULES:
In an effort to maintain fairness for all the residents who are working hard, we would not want any team to have an advantage; therefore all participants competing in the OLEMPICS competitions can not have participated in OlEMPICS events in previous years. 

Costumes/group shirts encouraged! Points for most creative shirts/costumes, but must be able to run, crawl, carry heavy things, etc; wear something to do athletic events in. Click here to view photos from last year for ideas. 
   * Need to wear running/athletic shoes.
   * Need to have baseline athletic abilities.
   * Bandanas provided (different color per team).
   * OlEMPICS tshirt provided per person if not interested in themed costume.
   * Minimum number of residents needed per team is 6, but 8 is preferred.
