Please open the PDF for last month, the forms are marked either PASS OR REPEAT. 
Specific feedback for you can be found in the attached PDF provided.  Below is general feedback given to ALL presenters:
  • The faculty want to stress the importance of citing authors papers in your presentations.  If you summarized a study, a citation in slide is required.  If you're using a quote word for word, to include quotation marks and citation.
  •  Also, they would like to say that if the content of your presentations is good, your improvement can be made in how you present your materials.  It's a good idea to prepare for your presentation in advance by practicing at home and timing yourself.  Focus on not reading from your slides by being familiar with the content in advance.  
Presenters that are marked "REPEAT" will present again at the December 2018 meeting incorporating commentary notes including, but not limited to, your answers to questions/comments from the advisory panel and peer cohort members, additional sources of reference supporting the answers and modifications of treatment strategies if there are any.
Presenters that are marked "PASS" based on the Medical Presentation Evaluation Rubric during may for the DECEMBER 2018 meeting:
  • Present a new presentation following the topic of the quarter.
