The Vesalius Trust, in co-operation with the Association of Medical Illustrators, will hold the Vesalius Trust Poster Symposium during the 2021 AMI Annual Conference. All 2020-2021 applicants to the Vesalius Trust Scholarship Program are invited to present their research in poster session format at this year’s AMI conference.

INFORMATION FOR VT SCHOLARS SPEAKERS

Dear Scholar,

Congratulations again on your scholarship! By now I have spoken to you about the VT Ted-Style Talks. Thanks again for agreeing to present. Here is all the info you should know about participating in the Sessions.

The Vesalius Trust for Visual Communication in the Health Sciences is proud to host The VT Scholars Ted-Style Talks devoted to student research in the areas of medical illustration and biomedical communication. We wish all of this year’s biocommunication graduates success, 6 of who will present the research done as part of their graduate studies. These award recipients will describe their research goals, problem-solving techniques and general methodology, including the use of traditional and innovative, computer-based techniques. Attendees will gain keen insight into the clinical, biomedical, and instructional design research currently being undertaken by medical illustration students in North America.

WHAT & WHEN:

We will need you 5 minute (10 minutes for the Alan Cole winner) pre-recorded video presentation no later than July 6th. Please send to fairman@jhmi.edu as an .mp4 file. Label your files with your last name, first initial.

Drop them in this Dropbox folder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/l5jjf1kiw53cjai/AABSUMitPeQuox7-9V93VKtaa?dl=0

Length/Format:  Each of you will be allowed 5 minutes to present (except for the Alan Cole Scholar who will have 10 minutes). Record yourself presenting however you prefer (Powerpoint, Keynote, Using Zoom etc). Your presentation can include snippets of animation/interactive sequences to your topic.  Be mindful of how long those sequences are as they must stay within your allotted time. Becuae these are pre-recorded, here will be no time for questions until all 6 of the videos have been played. Questions will be addressed after the session concludes during “meet the speakers” and/or at the VT Poster Session.

What to speak about:  This is your oyster to basically present your thesis. For some of you, students have prepared a presentation already as a graduation requirement (and maybe you have it memorized. That’s great! If not, don’t worry. You can talk about the research goals, problem-solving techniques and general methodology of your individual project. You may also prepare snippets of animation/interactive sequences to your topic.  Again, be mindful of how long those sequences are as they must stay within your 5/10 minutes.

Please send the following to fairman@jhmi.edu as soon as possible

  • Your full name as you would like it to appear in the program
  • The Title of your project/talk
  • A 1500 pixel wide represenative image from your project (for the AMI meeting website).
