Residents from Boston University School of Medicine won the Fifth MindGames competition at APA's 2010 annual meeting in Honolulu. The members of the winning team (from left to right) are B.U. residents Ana Ivkovic, M.D., Mark Oldham, M.D., and Brie Beaudoin, M.D.

Over 100 programs from across the U.S. and Canada competed in a qualifying phase that began in February. The three finalists who advanced to the competition in Honolulu were Boston University, New York Presbyterian/Cornell Campus, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Residents were tested on their knowledge of a wide range of topics related to psychiatry and medicine in a "Jeopardy"-style format that attracted a packed crowd of supporters and cheerleaders for all three programs.

As in the past, renowned psychiatrist Glen Gabbard, M.D., served as MindGames moderator. Judges were Naleen Andrade, M.D., Charles Nemeroff, M.D., and Michelle Riba, M.D.
