Three students from the UMKC School of Medicine’s Master of Science in Anesthesia program captured the top prize in the Jeopardy competition during the American Academy of Anesthesiologists Assistants 35th Annual Conference conducted April 2-5 in Destin, Fla.

It was the second year in a row that the School of Medicine’s anesthesiology assistants program has won the competition that pits students from all seven of the MSA programs in the United States.

Members of this year’s winning team were Megg McCue, Jason Brewer and Christopher Crihfield. All three are on track to graduate from the program in May 2013.

This is a great honor for our students. They worked very hard to prepare for this event,” said Melanie Guthrie, A.A.-C., M.S.A., director of the School’s MSA program. “I am extremely proud of how they represented both the MSA program and the UMKC School Medicine in this competition.”
