Virtual Video Tournament

Saturday, June 5, 2021

During the LIVE Virtual Video Tournament, attendees will witness clinical experts analyze and discuss a case by phenomenology, syndromic classification and differential diagnosis.  The audience will be able to submit comments via a live chat.  This event will challenge participants to improve diagnostic skills with unique and interesting cases.  This event is open to all registered delegates.  

Video Case Submission

MDS Members and non-members from within the Asian and Oceanian section are invited to submit interesting and educational video cases that they wish to present during the Virtual Video Tournament. Presentations will entail a brief clinical description and a well-edited video of no more than 2 minutes. All cases should have a known diagnosis that will be shared at the end of the presentation.  At the time of submission, a designated contact person will be identified who will present the case during a live Zoom Webinar if selected.
