NORWALK, Conn., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US today announced the winners of the first "Diagnostic Champions' Challenge" (http://goforthegold.consultantlive.com) – an online game designed to test the knowledge and medical diagnostic skills of physicians and other healthcare professionals. Connie Le, MD of Virginia and Elizabeth Munnie, RPA-C of New York have each won an ounce of gold bullion by placing first in the final round of the five-week challenge hosted on ConsultantLive.
During the five-week interactive challenge, players were given sets of multiple choice diagnostic dilemmas to solve – culminating with the top physician and non-physician players from the first four weeks competing in the final round. Clinical topics ranged from diagnosing minor bumps and bruises, to sexually transmitted infections and dermatologic conditions.
