 I departed from Japan to New Orleans with determination to fight against the United States teams in the Dr’s Dilemma National Competition in ACP Internal Medicine Meeting 2018. Dr’s Dilemma is a competition to test the medical knowledge of around 50 teams, each representing each ACP chapters around the World. I participated in the competition with doctors from Nerima Hikarigaoka Hospital, the champion team in the 2017 ACP Japan Chapter Dr’s Dilemma Competition. In the elimination round, we fought against 4 teams including the state of Washington and Massachusetts. Quizzes were first read loud by the speaker, and the scripts were shown up on the screen afterward. Although we could reach the final question, we could not go through to the semi-final round. We ended up being the 4th, taking out the Massachusetts team. Not only I could compete in the great competition, the conference itself also gave me opportunities to expand the wave of exchange with physicians around the world, making the experience was an one chance in a million, I deeply appreciate everyone in the ACP Japan Chapter and Okayama University Hospital, Department of General Medicine, for substantial support. Finally, I would like to thank ACP Japan Chapter for supporting us with travel grants.
