The IDBugBowl is a Jeopardy-style quiz game being organized for IDWeek 2021! Click below to begin your application to participate in IDBugBowl 2021 that will be held during IDWeek (Sept. 29-Oct. 3, 2021). Applications are due by July 30, 2021IDBugBowl will be held Oct. 2, at 3 p.m. ET.

Each team should consist of three members; one current ID/Pediatric ID fellow and one internal medicine/pediatric resident. Programs can make substitutions as needed, including using medical students, but one fellow and one resident are required.

NEW! The IDBugBowl committee is asking each program to submit a 30-60 second video introducing your institution, your team, and telling them why you love IDBugBowl! Think TikTok and have fun with it — IDWeek and the IDBugBowl committee may use your video on social media, the IDWeek website, or during IDBugBowl. Selection will not be based on your video, however it is mandatory.
