The objective of this unit is to provide surgical candidates with the skills and art of delivering powerful professional presentations at scientific meetings. Knowing how much detail to include or exclude requires judgement. Candidates will learn the critical steps to success from abstract preparation, visual presentation, content, structure, coherent design and delivery. Key topics covered include the formation of an effective argument and focus point, style of delivery, avoiding critical errors, as well analyzing, understanding and handling the audience. By the end of the semester candidates will be confident and have the core skills to present their own surgical research effectively in a way that is engaging, persuasive and will maximise impact. This unit of study will also be helpful for candidates undertaking dissertation A and B for the Master of Surgery.
