We finish up our workshop session for the academic year with a talk from Dr Terry Quinn on Poster Making Skills. Dr Quinn is a geriatric academic based at the Royal Infirmary who has had a lot of involvement with GEMS in the past. He spoke at our recent conference on Abstract Writing and Poster Presentation, and will now bring this topic to our workshop. Posters are an easy and fun way to present research, attend conference and above all boost your CV. This session will cover what makes a good poster and how to go about making one of conference standard.
The session will be split. We will initially have a short talk from Dr Quinn about designing posters, and then spend some time critiquing example posters. This will be a good opportunity to see and learn from posters which have been accepted at conference level. The session will be of benefit to everyone wanting to present some work in the future, and we hope may be of some benefit to Intercalting students before their big hand in!
The session will be held on Tuesday 6th March at 6:30 in Seminar Room 1, Wolfson Medical School.
