Special Events

Junior Fellow Simulation Festival

This year's Junior Fellow Event is a friendly competition between our nine military residency programs. Each program has developed a low-cost, low-fidelity, and easily reproducible simulation model to showcase for our district. Please join us! Stop by and see their excellent work, learn about other junior fellow initiatives, and network with our outstanding junior fellows.

Junior Fellow Jeopardy

Back after a two-year COVID hiatus is the reason everyone comes to AFD! Come join in the fun for our annual tri-service Jeopardy competition, Elvis Presley-style. There will be a costume contest, so feel free to dress up in your best Elvis (or 1950s) attire. Come answer some tough OBGYN questions and cheer on your favorite branch as they battle for the coveted reigning champion title. Viva Las Vegas!
