  •                         Monthly Oral Presentations

     

    The overall goal of these sessions is to provide opportunity for postdocs to practice oral presentations and receive feedback from peers under low pressure conditions.

     Postdoctoral Fellows and Instructors can choose to practice a short presentation (10-20 min talk plus 5 min discussion) or a long presentation (40-45 min talk plus 10 min discussion). The presentation can be on one's own research results, ideas for grant proposals, or can be related to a recent publication. For example, the presentation can serve as practice for an upcoming oral presentation at a conference or to brainstorm ideas for future research plans.

    One week prior to the presentation, the speaker(s) provide an abstract or relevant article to be distributed to all postdocs. Postdocs in the audience will provide feedback to the presenter via an evaluation sheet with comments and suggestions.

    If you would like to present, please contact Dr. Ana Palei (apalei@umc.edu), Dr. Sydney Murphy (smurphy@umc.edu) or Dr. Sharonda Swilley (sswilley@umc.edu).
