Student Symposium 2023
Face to Face event
The Student Symposium (previously known as Research Week) showcases the diverse range of clinical and translational research undertaken by research students at the Women’s.
A virtual Research Poster Gallery will be on display in the lead up to the Symposium.
This year we return to a face to face format. The symposium will comprise of short presentations (3 minutes) followed by 2 minutes of questions, similar to a 3-minute thesis (3MT) format.
The top 25 submissions will be selected and presented in online events during November.
