Delivering Medicine Beyond Culture and Disciplines

Oral Assessment Guidelines

  1. Each presenter will be given 10 minutes for presentation and 2 minutes for Q&A.
  2. The top three presenters across all sessions will be selected by the adjudicators and be awarded with a trophy and a prize.
  3. Adjudicators will grade the presenters using the following scheme:

    Student name:Score*
    Oral presentation number:
    Presentation style, organization and visuals
    Oral presentation skills (speech clarity, tempo, volume)12345
    Visual appeal of the slides (attractive and balanced)12345
    Legibility of text, figures and tables (simple, illustrative)12345
    Ability to handle Q&A session12345
    Presentation content
    Introduction/background of research comprehendible for outsiders12345
    Methods and results explained in appropriate detail for presentation12345
    Data well summarized and concluded12345
    Originality and scientific merit12345
    * 1 = poor, 5 = excellent
  4. Using the above scheme as an aid, each adjudicator will form their personal top 5 presenters with ranking.
  5. Adjudicators will discuss and deliberate on the 3 winners after the last oral presentation session.
  6. The winner, 1st runner-up and 2nd runner-up will be awarded a trophy and a prize; last year the top 3 oral presenters were awarded sponsored prizes valued at $5,000 - $15,000.
