10 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This builds on MED6009 and MED6090. In all MED60x3 modules, the candidate is trained in distilling intellectual content into a 15 minute talk with visual aids that is given to peers, academics and academic examiners. Candidates derive this from the background, hypothesis, methods and some preliminary findings of their current research project. Students will gain experience of responding to questions from their peers and academic staff and pose questions to other students after their talks.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Tutorials, Laboratory work, Independent Study
Assessment: Presentation
WebCT resources are available for this module

In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
