3M+1Q is NEW. Oral presentations this year will take the form of a 3-minute talk plus 1 question (3+1Q). The 3+1Q competition was inspired by the world renowned 3MT (three-minute thesis) competition which was conceived at the University of Queensland in 2008.

Also NEW in 2022: Students submitting an abstract to this year’s conference and giving a 3M+1Q talk are also eligible to be chosen for the Medical Deans of Australia and New Zealand (MDANZ) 3M+1Q competition. The MDANZ are holding their inaugural 3M+1Q competition in November. The winner, runners up and people’s choice will be crowed champions amongst all 23 medical schools in Australia and New Zealand.  Rules are the same. You get two chances with one effort.
