Confirmation - Poster Day

Thank you for participating in the Summer Student Research Program Poster Day at the Child & Family Research Institute.

On Thursday, July 31, 2014 participants are asked to arrive between 9:30 and 10:00am to sign-in and receive their welcome package. The poster session will begin promptly at 10:00am. Closer to the date you will receive a complete schedule of events, list of poster participants and your assigned board number. Please note poster boards will be available for set-up in the Chieng Family Atrium starting Wednesday, July 30 at 2:00pm.

Each participant will be assigned to the clinical or basic science category which will be broken down into groups. Each group will have a judge whose role is to score participants based on student presentation and poster presentation and identify the best poster. You will have a maximum of 5 minutes to discuss the poster and a maximum of 5 minutes to answer questions.

Judges will be asked to identify the best poster in each group based on the following criteria: general presentation of the poster, scientific content and student’s ability to explain their work/answer questions.

At 12:00pm a BBQ lunch will be held on the patio for participants. After (approximately 1:00pm) an awards presentation will be held in the Chan Centre for Family Health Education. Each best poster recipient will receive a certificate acknowledging them as Summer Student Research Program poster finalists and a UBC gift card.

If you have any questions or concerns prior to the date, please contact the Research Education Office at or by phone at 604-875-2000 ext 5397.

Your participation is key to the success of this event.  We look forward to having a great day celebrating your accomplishments.
