ASMR Vic Student Symposium

June 1

Royal Melbourne Hospital

A showcase symposium where all Victorian health and medical research students can present their work to an audience of their peers, and network with and listen to some of Victoria’s top medical researchers in a friendly, approachable and cooperative scientific environment.

Participating students foster collaborations and network, increasing the awareness of the expertise and research being conducted around Victoria.

During the symposium, research students participate in oral or poster presentations, as well as the popular ‘3 minute thesis’ styled presentations – where students must effectively explain their research, with one PowerPoint slide, in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.

Presentations are judged by a panel of senior academics and post-docs, with attractive monetary prizes awarded for outstanding work.
