OSU Repeats As Residents Bowl Champions!

Residents Bowl 2023 Congratulations to the Ohio State University on their title of the 2023 Residents Bowl Champions! In an exciting final round, Ohio State outlasted the Stanford University to claim the title, which they previously won in 2022.

The one-of-a-kind competition pits programs against each other as residents answer questions on case studies and the core curriculum of plastic surgery.

How to Play

The games consist of 10 multiple choice questions, with the final championship game consisting of 15 questions. Each member of the team will answer every question individually and the scoring will be based on having the correct answer as well as how quickly the question was answered.

Team members can consult with one another before answering, but taking longer to answer could negatively impact your score. At the end of each round, each of the team members' scores will be averaged together to get an overall team score. The team with the higher total score will win the game and advance to the next round.

After the final round on Sunday morning, the winners are crowned and have their names engraved on a nearly two-foot tall silver trophy – along with earning year-long bragging rights.
