MEDICAL WRITING AND PRESENTATION SKILLS (ONLINE)
Medical educators and researchers must be able to present their work clearly and effectively. However, important educational material and research data are sometimes obscured by poorly delivered presentations or poorly written manuscripts. The main objective of this course is to help students develop excellent medical writing and presentation skills. This objective will be achieved through a combination of videos, readings, individual assignments, and team projects in which students will practice specific skills. Students will craft an abstract, write a discussion section of a manuscript, practice methods of disseminating their science to the lay public, create a poster, construct a table or figure, and develop a PowerPoint presentation and record themselves delivering a 10-minute talk.
