Beginning with the incoming class of 2016, you will give your first Journal Club presentation during your second year. You should schedule your presentation for Winter Quarter or early Spring Quarter so that it does not interfere with your General Exam preparations. You will be contacted in July to select a presentation date.
Second year students will give their first Research Reports presentation during Autumn Quarter (MSTP students, having selected thesis labs upon joining the program, will give their first RR presentation their first year). You will work with faculty members to develop your presentation by taking an informal presentation course the summer prior to your first RR presentation.
