Midway Evaluation PhD Department of Biomedicine

Course description

Language of instruction

English

Course content

At the Department of Biomedicine the midterm evaluation is organized by the Phd-coordinator. The PhD-board will appoint an evaluation committee consisting of two members.

Before the midterm evaluations, candidates must submit a progress report addressing:

  •  
    • Scientific activities and results
    • Publications
    • The training component
    • Plan for completion and estimated submission date
    • Any problems or other comments

 At the midterm evaluation, the candidate holds a public presentation of 20 min duration held in English. After the presentation, the candidate, supervisors and evaluation committee withdraw for a discussion. The committee will also speak to the candidate alone, in the absence of the supervisors.

A candidate with poor progression within one or more areas will be followed up individually.

Learning outcomes

In science it is of vital importance that a candidate can present his/her project in a convincing way. As the session has a structure of a scientific presentation, the feedback from the evaluation committee will provide the candidate with new knowledge related to:
- the quality of the presentation,
- how they should handle critics related to project,
- the status of the project according to the project plan.
This will give the candidate more insight into his/her own project.

Study period
