MEDSCI 722 presentations

Presentations will be held in October (see Timetable).

The session will start promptly at 11:05 am. Presentations will be limited to the allocated times (see below).

Students are asked to deliver a 15 minute presentation on their essay topic. The talk should focus on what was the most interesting thing discovered in the critical review of the datasheet.

Powerpoint slides should be used. Questions will be encouraged from the audience.

Powerpoint presentations must be received by Dr Holford no later than 7:30 am on the day of the presentation via email.

Please note that strict timing will be necessary to give everyone a chance to talk. Talks will be stopped after 15 minutes to allow 5 minutes for questions.

Five out of 25 marks allocated for the coursework assessment will be based on the oral presentation.

All students are expected to attend both presentation sessions.

One question in the final exam will be related to the material discussed in the coursework presentatation sessions.

Marks will be based on:

  1. Relevance of presentation to the requested focus
  2. Organisation of presentation material
  3. Familiarity with drug and datasheet
  4. Effective use of time
  5. Response to questions
Please be prepared to give a Powerpoint presentation and respond to questions.
