About the Event

Summer students from all research programs are invited to present their work (literature review, results of experiments they have conducted or participated in, etc.) in either oral or poster format. The goal of the event is to provide an unique opportunity to the RI-MUHC trainees to introduce the RI-MUHC community to their research project. Up to two oral presentations will be chosen from participating research programs from the pool of submitted abstracts. The other abstracts will be selected for virtual poster presentation. Lunch for onsite participants as well as participation prizes and presentations awards will be provided.

Who can participate: Any undergraduate student, visiting student enrolled at the RI-MUHC as a summer student, intern or volunteer.

Instructions for Oral and Poster Presentations

Detailed instructions for Oral and Poster Pitch Presenters are below. Please note that we may modify length or orals and poster pitches based on the number of submissions and final in-person/virtual format of the event.

In-person or Oral Presentations:

Oral presentations will be held in person in the Cruess Amphitheatre. Each presenter will have 10 minutes for their powerpoint presentation. Plan for ~8 minutes for your presentation which should cover an intro, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions. Leave ~2 minutes for questions. Note: all orals will be judged together – so remember to make your presentation ACCESSIBLE TO A BROAD AUDIENCE and AVOID JARGON. Explain all clinical terms (fellows: remember to explain diseases and clinical procedures). Explain all scientific methods (basic trainees: not everyone does flow cytometry, so remember to describe your experiments and methods clearly). Your talks will be judged by senior trainees and faculty from a wide range of backgrounds.

Virtual Poster Presentations:

Poster presentations will be held virtually via zoom. During the virtual poster session, each presenter will have 8 minutes to present their poster followed by a 3-4 minute Q&A period. PRACTICE THIS PITCH! The goal is not to read the poster, but to use this time to introduce yourself, your research, and your major outcomes in a succinct and clear manner. Remember to make your presentation ACCESSIBLE TO A BROAD AUDIENCE and AVOID JARGON. As the poster session will be virtual, each presenter will be allowed to show 1 slide. You must upload your poster to the event website prior to the event. This poster will be used during the virtual poster session.
