KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Dozens of resident physicians will test out their skills in the Ortholympics on the UMKC campus Wednesday.
This is the second year for the Ortholympics, and it was created as a way to celebrate Resident Appreciation Day.
During the games, resident will compete in a wheelchair race, race on crutches, a casting competition and more. UMKC has more than 400 physicians in training.
Dr. James Barnes says the main goal of Ortholympics is to put the students' training to the test.
"They'll be judged on quality as well as on speed," Dr. Barnes said. "It's important that you do it well, but you also do it quickly."
