Medicine and Radiology, RMH GR Seminar Series

Every week on Friday, until 13 Dec 2018

Medicine and Radiology@ Royal Melbourne Hospital runs a weekly GR Seminar Series every Friday (mostly) in the Ewing Lecture Theatre, 5th Floor, Clinical Sciences Building, Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Postgraduate seminars give students the opportunity to present their research projects during the confirmation process and to provide annual progress updates. For students presenting their Orations, it is an opportunity  to receive constructive feedback from an expert audience prior to thesis submission. We strongly encourage students and staff at Royal Melbourne Hospital to attend these presentations; independent input and feedback is greatly valued and helps the students to consolidate their ideas.

Note: Please contact Ms Kim Ng to schedule your seminars.
