ASAPAC Resident March Mayhem Champions Announced: Maine Medical, Mayo Clinic Arizona, and Texas A&M!


On March 19, a record 24 residency programs from across the country began a challenging three-week race to the finish in ASAPAC's Fourth Annual Resident March Mayhem Competition.

The competition: compete against a resident program you've been matched with to generate more ASAPAC and Grassroots participation. As a result, seven programs achieved 100 percent ASAPAC participation and three programs achieved 100 percent Grassroots Network participation. The prize: an ASAPAC sponsored pizza party and a place in ASAPAC history.

Congratulations to Maine Medical Residents and all the programs who participated in the fourth Annual Resident March Mayhem Competition!
