|ACP: Doctor's Dilemma℠ Mobile||Back|
ACP's national medical jeopardy competition, Doctor's Dilemma℠, is held each year at the annual scientific Internal Medicine meeting. Up to 40 teams of residents from around the nation compete for the title of national champion. The same style questions used in the competition are now available in this PDA format.
All Internet-enabled devices equipped with a Web browser.
Each game has 15 questions (3 categories of 5 questions). A game is named by its 3 categories and the date of release (e.g., 07/2008: Allergy, Ethics, Pregnancy). Click the name to begin.
The game will open with 3 columns. Each column has the category name abbreviation at the top, with 5 numbers ranging from 10-50 beneath it. Clicking on a number will take you to a question relating to that category. The numbers correspond to the question's point value (e.g., 20 = 20 points). Higher valued questions are typically more difficult than lower numbered questions.
Once you reach the question page, read the question and once you decide on an answer, click the "show answer" button. This will display the correct answer. If your answer matches, click "I was correct." If your answer differs, click "I was incorrect." Clicking correct or incorrect will return you to the main menu.

As you answer questions, the game board is updated with a + symbol for questions you had correct and a - symbol for incorrect answers.
Each question has an assigned point value ranging from 10-50. As you answer questions, points are added or subtracted based on correct and incorrect answers, respectively. Your total is updated after each question and is constantly displayed in the bottom right corner of the screen. There are 450 points in each game.
You do not have to answer all 15 questions in one sitting. The game menu will display how many questions remain in each game (e.g., 07/2008: Allergy, Ethics, Pregnancy 11 more). NOTE: Answers are saved to your local device, so you must answer all questions from the same machine.
No, you must be connected to play.
After you answer all 15 questions, the final screen will display a point summary for each category. If you would like, you can clear your score and play again. Otherwise, click the "Menu" link in the top right corner to return to the list of games.
After you answer all 15 questions in a game, you have the ability to clear scores. Click the "clear scores" button to clear scores and start the game again.
