Student Research Day
This annual event is organized by graduate students under the supervision of Dr. Donna Marie McCafferty to provide a forum to showcase their research and to acquire experience in scientific presentation. Abstracts are selected for oral or poster presentation by a student committee with faculty input. Faculty members act as judges for best oral and poster presentations.
This annual event is held off-site by the Institute to provide professional development for trainees with regard to career options (both academic and non-academic), resume development, presentation skills, interviewing skills etc. Topics are driven by student interests/requests through a student committee. This years professional development day will be taking place June 14th, 2016 at the University of Calgary downtown campus. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. A full agenda will be added at a later date.
Funds can be requested for speakers invited by, and catering to, a niche group within the Institute who also have a somewhat broader appeal to Institute members. A maximum of $1,500 would be available for any single visit with the remaining costs covered by partnering sources. Examples of partnering sources would be, leaders in medicine programme, departmental sources, graduate studies support for a PhD external examiner. This programme would also cater to individuals who may have committed to a meeting in Banff and could stop over for a day in Calgary. Applications should be submitted at least 2 months prior to the event and will be reviewed on an ad hoc basis.
