Aron Hill in the 2016 CCS heat: video
Support our PhD students by coming along to the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) heat for Central Clinical School on Tuesday 27 June 2017! The 3MT event was established in 2008 by University of Queensland and has become international, as it is a very popular and effective showcase for PhD students to make their often highly technical research accessible for a lay audience.

  • Venue: Lecture theatre, level 5, Alfred Centre
  • Date: Tuesday 27 June 2017
  • Time: 2-3 pm
  • All welcome! The audience also gets to vote, and a prize is awarded to the People's Choice winner
  • See CCS's 2016 3MT video playlist
