Aim and content
This is a generic course. This means that the course is reserved for PhD students at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences at UCPH. Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at the Graduate School, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. After the enrolment deadline, available seats will be allocated to the waiting list.

The course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1st year graduate students
1.Critically review abstracts and poster presentations
2.Reflect on oral presentations
3.Apply correct scientific writing to their research papers and thesis

2nd year graduate students
1.Present and discuss a scientific poster
2.Reflect on oral presentations
3.Apply poster presentation skills to their poster presentations

3rd year graduate students
1.Present and discuss their research project orally
2.Apply communication and presentation skills to oral presentations


Content
Day 1 consists of workshops of different skills relevant to the different stages of the graduate studies.

1st year students will attend the course on ‘writing skills in academia’:
Writing is an integral part of academia, and includes specific genres such as the abstract, manuscript or the thesis.

This workshop contents are:
•How to get started
•Structure your writing
•Abstract style
•English grammar
•Legible scientific English

Teacher: Nicolai Paulsen, language consultant, University of Copenhagen.


2nd year students will attend the course on ‘Posters: can they deliver the goods? Yes!’:

Get ideas and tips about what to present, how to portray it, and how to present it orally

Teachers: to be determined


3rd year students will attend the course on ‘Communication & presentation in the academic context: How to be confident and persuasive’:

Whether small talk or academic subject presentation – the ability to present oneself adequately and to communicate one’s concerns effectively is a deciding factor of career-related success in academia.

With a few fundamental strategies for communication and presentation techniques, it is possible to illustrate complex data in a relevant manner, to convince others, to win supporters and thus reach the respectively set goals.

In this workshop the participants engage with their personal communication strategies. Through exercises and role-playing they familiarize themselves with established presentation techniques and train their communicative competencies. The workshop contents are:

•Communication basics: Good communication presumes set goals
•Presentation basics: Preparation is key
•Go public – go scientific! The context makes the difference
•Everything under control? Dealing with difficult situations
•Role-play: Presentation situations in practice
•Minima rhetorica: Tips & tricks on the art of oratory
•Communication & presentation:My next steps

Teacher: Melanie Lynn Conrad, Golin Wissenschaftsmanagement, Hamburg

Graduate students affiliated with the graduate program in cardiovascular research participate in day 1.


Day 2 contains plenary lectures and presentations from the PhD students in the graduate program in cardiovascular research: 2nd year PhD students present their research projects on posters and 3rd year PhD students present their projects orally. The presentations will be reviewed and evaluated by the 1st year students under guidance of a group of supervisors in the graduate program.

Four plenary lectures will be given by prominent researchers in the field of cardiovascular research which will be announced later.

Prizes will be given to best abstract, poster presentation, and oral presentation at the CardioDinner taking place the same evening.

Graduate students and their supervisors affiliated with the cardiovascular graduate participate in day 2.
