Ophthalmic Jeopardy!

Posted By Tim Bennett, Monday, April 3, 2017
Updated: Friday, May 12, 2017

In what’s become a bit of a tradition at OPS Mid-Year Educational Programs, I been invited to present Ophthalmic Jeopardy again in 2017. The mid-year is a great environment for this presentation, as the attendees are all together in the same lecture hall for the entire program. In short, I have a captive audience!

If you’ve never seen it, Jeopardy is an irreverent but truly educational event, loaded with audio clips, videos, and spectacular clinical images. Although it’s been presented several times at OPS meetings, it’s just a little different each time. I try to customize the content for each specific meeting and location, often pulling inspiration from topics that will be covered by other presenters earlier in the educational program. At every OPS lecture I attend, I often take notes looking for new categories and questions. I also get some great material from other OPS members who forward ideas and images to me after seeing Jeopardy in action.

Looking over the great lineup of speakers and topics scheduled for Pittsburgh, I’ve been able to choose some cool categories and begin writing questions. New or recent categories will include: Creepy Crawlies, Oma Gosh, and The ‘Burgh. Of course I’ll include some of the classics such as: Animal Kingdom, Celestial Bodies, Ex Girlfriends, Video Acuity, and OCT Rorschach Test.

Hopefully I’ll see you in Pittsburgh. I’ll be channeling my inner Alex Trebek as host of Ophthalmic Jeopardy - although it’s probably closer to the Will Ferrell’s SNL impersonation of Trebek! Ophthalmic Jeopardy is a fun, informative, and challenging way to learn. If you do attend the meeting, be sure to pay attention to all the great speakers/lectures in the Mid-Year program lineup. I’ve been known to sneak in questions at the last minute and see if everyone has been paying attention!

It was fabulous to see ICOP attendees, mostly from Asia, get into the swing of playing Ophthalmic Jeopardy! Even though they weren't familiar with the game show, they figured it out quickly and a great time was had by all. Tim brings new meaning to the phrase "the host with the most".
