“See you next year!” – and with that, Anatomy Challenge 2021 drew to a close following the closing address by Professor Joseph Sung, Dean of Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine).
Over 230 participants from 47 teams and 20 Junior Colleges, Polytechnics and International Schools participated in this year’s edition of Anatomy Challenge. On 17 April 2021, LKCMedicine student volunteers headed down to the participating institutes and conducted a gruelling Individual Challenge, testing participants’ knowledge of Anatomy and their ability to apply their knowledge to various scenarios.
They also went through exciting programme booths and learnt about the relevance of anatomy in a clinical context.
Our Guest-of-Honour Assistant Professor Sharon Yeo shared in her keynote address via video, titled The Pelvis: Everyone’s First Home, the magnificence, importance, and the stigma surrounding the pelvis.
The top 5 teams – River Valley High School, Nanyang Polytechnic School of Applied Science, Hwa Chong Institution, Raffles Institution and Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) – were then invited to compete in the Finals, conducted on 24 April at the LKCMedicine Clinical Sciences Building.
They went through six intense rounds of questions held in a gameshow format, which involved segments such as Video Round, Don’t Forget the Lyrics, Rapid Fire, and a special round of Judges’ Question.
After a rigorous and intense morning, Nanyang Polytechnic School of Applied Science emerged as the Champion of the 4th edition of Anatomy Challenge. They were awarded the Professor Low Cheng Hock Challenge Shield by Professor Low himself, as well as the Anatomy Challenge Championship Trophy by Dean Prof Sung.
Anatomy Challenge 2021 was made possible by our sponsors – National Healthcare Group Pharmacy, Elsevier, Wildtype Media Group, and Professor Low Cheng Hock. Our esteemed Judges were exceptionally impressed by the participants’ performance this year in the Individual Challenge and Team Challenge. We hope that all participants have been inspired and encouraged by the Challenge to continue pursuing knowledge in this field.
See you next year!
