YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR PITCH NOW - iPitch Competition | iMed Conference ® 15.0 - Lisbon 2023
The iMed Conference’s iPitch Competition | Public Speaking Competition is a competition for undergraduate and master Life Sciences students designed to offer the participants the opportunity to have a unique clinical or research learning experience in a renowned European Centre with well-known physicians and scientists. This competition aims to encourage students to develop skills in the areas of public speaking and speech delivery by creating an opportunity to learn how to present an idea, approach an audience and convey their message.
Each participant has to defend an opinion of the situation presented and sustain it with persuasive arguments. We have two problems, one for the Clinical category, and the other for the Research category, that serve as a basis for each participant's Pitch.
