In addition to required enrollment and attendance in one of the weekly Pharmaceutical Sciences Seminar Series (Drug Action, Drug Delivery, or Drug Discovery) throughout the academic year (course number: 931-fall; 932-spring), PharmSci graduate students are required to give an oral presentation beginning in their 2nd year of the program, and each year thereafter. The goals of the research presentation are to give students experience in public oral presentations beyond their immediate lab setting as well as for students to receive constructive feedback on their developing seminar presentation skills. Official requirements include the following:
- Student presentations are expected to be formal (e.g. PowerPoint) presentations.
- At least two Pharmaceutical Sciences faculty/affiliate faculty members must be present to evaluate the presentation.
- The Research Presentation Requirement Form should be turned in annually to the Graduate Programs Coordinator office by the end of August (preferably within two weeks after giving a seminar).
