Description

The goal of the Student Seminar is to improve the critical thinking and public speaking of graduate students in Physiology. This course will provide students with the opportunity to present data, critique the scientific literature, and develop the ability to provide constructive criticism to their peers. Students present a critical review of a topic from the current scientific literature or from their own research once each term. Second year Physiology graduate students are required to enroll, first year PIBS students interested in a Physiology degree are invited to register or audit the course. The Physiology Graduate Student Representatives in consultation with the Physiology Graduate Chair coordinate the program, establish ground-rules and organize the schedule for each term. The Seminar is graded pass/fail on the basis of participation and presentations.

The MIP Student Seminar (also identified as Current Topics in Physiology) is held in both Fall and Winter terms. These seminars help to bring the Program together each week. All MIP students, including candidates, and MIP faculty, are encouraged to attend the student seminars. The goals of the Student Seminar are to improve critical thinking, to help identify and solidify a research focus, to obtain experience in developing presentations in PowerPoint, and to develop and practice skills in public speaking in a non-threatening and informal setting. This course gives students the opportunity to present data, critique the scientific literature, and develop the ability to provide constructive criticism to their peers. Students present a critical review of a topic from the current scientific literature or from their own research once each term. Second year MIP students and MSTP students are required to enroll; first year PIBS students interested in a degree in Molecular and Integrative Physiology are encouraged to register for the course. One or more members of the MIP Graduate Committee coordinate the course, establish ground-rules and organize the schedule. The seminar date for each student is indicated on a schedule prepared by the course director at the beginning of each term.
