Platform Presentation Structure

Residents giving a Virtual Platform Presentation will be allotted a maximum of 15 minutes for their presentation, but must provide a minimum of 12 minutes of content. Each Platform Presentation session will be 1 hour long and structured as follows:

  • Three 15 minute Platform Presentations by three residents
  • No more than 3 minutes for audience questions will immediately follow each resident's presentation
  • No more than 5 minutes for formal feedback by evaluator(s), both verbal and written

When creating your Platform Presentation you must utilize the PowerPoint template provided as the presentation medium. The template includes all required components of the presentation. You may add additional slides if needed. Residents are responsible for having their slides ready to go for their presentation. Slides do not need to be submitted in advance.

CE will be available for all Platform Presentation sessions. Therefore residents will be required to submit at least one learning objective and at least one learning assessment question, and will be required to complete a disclosure statement.

Optional Poster Presentation Information

The PSW Virtual Educational Conference/WPRC Poster Session is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14. For residents who would like to present a poster in addition to the Platform Presentation, please follow the guidelines below:

Posters must be professional in appearance, provide project information such as title and authors, abstract components (objectives, methods, results and conclusions), and charts and figures as necessary.

An effective poster presentation is not just a report or journal article hung on the wall. It should highlight the major points of the topic in a form that the viewer can absorb in a few minutes. Do not reproduce full pages of typed text as they are difficult to read. Posters should include short phrases, statements set off with bullets and clear graphics. The viewer should come away with some new knowledge or insights.
 

Tips

  • Keep text brief
  • Do not use all capital letters for text as they are harder to read than upper and lower case
  • Use graphics (charts, tables, pictures) that can be understood in a minute or less
  • Emphasize important information using color, different type sizes, etc.
  • Too many colors or fonts can be distracting
  • Assume that people will be looking at your poster from about 2 feet away and design it to be read from that distance
