That! Medical Quiz Show is a half-hour radio quiz show hosted by Dr. T. Glenn Pait and co-hosted by Lisa Cornwell that quizzes contestants on medically related issues and topics. It is produced in the US and broadcasts online and on various NPR affiliate stations.


That! Medical Quiz Show is a studio produced radio show, featuring three contestants per show who are quizzed by host Dr. T. Glenn Pait and co-host Lisa Cornwell. Contestants are usually not experienced in the medical field.[1] After introductions, the first featured round begins, which differs every broadcast.[2] There are a total of four rounds and all contestants have the chance to answer one question per round worth one point each and then a bonus round worth two points follows.[3] Whoever accumulates the most points after the final and fast-paced bonus round, "Cardiac Capper," receives a gag prize. The playful gag prizes have ranged from alligator wrestling lessons to items like Dr. Pait’s special pocket protector.[4] Lisa then asks for a question for Dr. Pait to pull out of his "That! Medical Quiz Bag." He concludes each show with the catchphrase: "Until next time, remember that more medical knowledge means better health...because there's a little bit of doctor in all of us.™"


There are four rounds and all contestants have a chance to answer one question per round worth one point each. Dr. Pait asks the question and gives the contestants three choices to choose from. Each round has a specific sound effect which provides a quirky feel to the show.

Ultra Sounds[edit]

Dr. Pait reads a description of a medical condition that has affected a public figure. Contestants will have to determine which disorder is described from the choices presented.
