Summer students from all RI-MUHC research programs are invited to present their work (literature review, results of experiments they have conducted or participated to, etc.) in either poster or oral format. Two oral presentations will be featured from each research program from the submitted abstracts. All other abstracts will present a poster. There is no competition and the presentations will not be judged. 

Oral Presentations 

Up to 2 oral presentations will be chosen from each research program. Each presenter will have a maximum of 8 minutes for their oral presentation.Your presentation should include an introduction, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions. Leave ~2 minutes for questions. Please come with your presentation on USB as all presentations will be loaded prior to the start of the morning session. Remember to have fun, avoid jargon, and make your presentation accessible to a broad audience! The audience will consist of researchers and trainees from a wide range of backgrounds. Remember to practice your presentation. 

Poster Presentations

If your abstract is not chosen for an oral, each presenter will have the opportunity to present their summer research project on a poster. Pushpins will be provided and feel free to print individual Powerpoint slides should you not be able to print a large poster. During the poster session, each summer student will have 4 minutes to “pitch” their poster. Use this pitch to introduce yourself, your research, and your major outcomes in a succinct and clear manner. Each summer student will then have up to 3 minutes to answer questions and provide additional details. Once again, remember to have fun, avoid jargon, and make your presentation accessible to a broad audience! Recommended poster size: 45x45 inches. Remember to practice your presentation - a 4 minute poster pitch goes by very fast!
