St. Barnabas Hospital took home the gold on Wednesday, May 24 at the inaugural Bronx SIM WARS, a competition between emergency medicine residents from St. Barnabas, Jacobi/Montefiore and Lincoln hospitals.

Held inside St. Barnabas’ auditorium, each five-member team received 20 minutes to work on a patient in distress, who transformed from an actor to a state-of-the-art mannequin.

A panel of judges scored the three teams on their clinical actions, teamwork and communications.
