NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US and Musculoskeletal Network today announced the winners of the " Diagnostic Champions' Challenge" – an online game designed to test the knowledge and medical diagnostic skills of physicians and other healthcare professionals. Dr. Steven Ugras and Linda Hoydal-Rahman, PA-C, both of New Jersey, have each won an ounce of gold bullion by placing first in the final round of the five-week challenge.

During the interactive challenge, players were tasked with answering multiple-choice questions based on diagnosing and assessing different types of musculoskeletal disorders – culminating with the top physician and non-physician players from the first four weeks competing in the final round.

"The Musculoskeletal Network, 'Diagnostic Champions' Challenge' was the third tournament offered across our network of online properties," said Brian Field, EVP/Managing Director, UBM Medica US.
