You will have 20 minutes. 15 minutes for your presentation and 5 minutes for feedback and questions. We want this to be a learning opportunity for you and your colleagues, rather than a stressful event. If the date does not work, please can I request that you swap with someone else and let me know? You are welcome to present a recent relevant journal article instead of a case presentation if you'd prefer.
Based on feedback from previous groups we have created a cheat sheet to guide your presentation.
1. Pick a topic/case that you care about, and focus on something you learnt. Don’t worry if ’the others will be bored’. If you didn’t know it, they probably don't either. Plus it generates conversation, and for those in the know, they will add to what you have discussed.
2. Focus on a specific thing ie, if you present a case, choose something about the case you want to talk about… investigations, management, differentials, the challenges you encountered, the literature search around it etc.
3. I suggest using a power point/keynote presentation to assist your presentation, It can be very tiring to keep your 'one man’ interpretive dance recital exciting for 15 mins 😉
4. Contact Bev or Preeti if you are struggling for a topic/ideas.
5. Practice at least once before the day!
6. Your colleagues are genuinely interested in what you have to say….believe this.
