Medicine is the science and practice of diagnosing and treating diseases, illnesses, and injuries. Medicine has been around since ancient times, but the vast majority of advances in the field have occurred in the last few centuries. Medical advances have made it possible to diagnose, treat, and even cure many diseases and illnesses. However, the practice of medicine is an ever-evolving field, and there are still many diseases and illnesses that remain incurable. Scientists and physicians are constantly searching for new treatments and cures, and medical research is an ongoing process.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) scans have become the standard for diagnosing a variety of medical conditions, from cancer to stroke. MRI and CT scans are now used to detect tumours and other malignancies and have become invaluable tools for diagnosing conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The advent of minimally invasive procedures has also had a major impact on the field of medicine
Organize Your Research
- State the hypothesis and purpose of your research.
- Describe your methods of investigation.
- Include data collected and what was learned.
- Give conclusions based on the collected data.
- Emphasize the significance and highlights of the research.
Shape Your Presentation
- Prepare notes that highlight the salient points of your talk.
- Practice the delivery of your talk, along with your slide sequence. Be sure your talk fits the time allotted.
- Use simple sentences. Avoid jargon, highly specialized vocabulary, and unfamiliar abbreviations.
- Think about questions you might be asked, and prepare your answers.
- Audio-visuals should amplify your talk, not duplicate it.
- Do not include music or film clips or other copyrighted content with your presentation unless it is directly relevant to your research. If you must include music, film clips, or similar content, please ensure that it is either open source or content for which you have copyright permissions to use. Optimally display your work—don't use words if a picture conveys it more clearly (graphs, tables, charts, etc.).
- Use line graphs to show trends; bar graphs to compare magnitudes; pie graphs to demonstrate relative portions of a whole.
- Make sure your supporting audio-visuals are concise, uncluttered, and easily read from a distance. We recommend that you use a font of at least eighteen points or larger. This is especially important in presentations to a virtual audience because screen sizes vary by user.
- Request special AV equipment early or it may not be available.
