Launchpad to Research Poster 3

The Faculty of Nursing Undergraduate Student Summer Series: Launchpad to Research provides an excellent learning opportunity for undergraduate students.  Students will gain essential knowledge and skills helpful in launching their careers in research.

Each week, lunch will be provided at noon for no additional fee, which will generally be followed by a 25-30 minute presentation from a FoN PhD student or PDF.  There will be time for students to network amongst themselves and/or faculty members present and enjoy the opportunity for discussions regarding student research projects, issues, and questions related to the research process.  Formal session presentations will run at 1:00/1:15 – 2:00 p.m.

In past years this series was open only to FoN undergraduate honours students.  This year, however, we will be opening registration to all undergraduate students within the health sciences who are involved in summer research.  Registration for Faculty of Nursing students is free.  A $100 registration fee will be charged to students in other faculties.

Sessions will be offered every Wednesday from June 3 – July 29, 2015.  During the final session on July 29, 2015 the students will present their summer research in a poster presentation open to all faculty and staff.

Registration is required.  For more information or to register, contact:
