How to Upload Your Slide Presentation

Before uploading your presentation, please be sure the following four criteria have been met:

 

1. For Department of Defense presenters, the individual presenter is responsible for obtaining the appropriate clearance from their local Public Affairs, OPSEC offices, or other organizational offices, as locally required. Although not required, we highly recommend that military presenters also include a clearance slug on the slide. Example shown below: 

 

2. All presentations must include a Disclaimer/Conflict of Interest Slide (samples below), which needs to be listed on one of your first slides preceding your presentation slides.

 

 

3. Proper playback:

a) Presentation is in PPT format and set to 16:9 wide format

b) If you are using videos, be sure that they are embedded and compressed

c) File size must not exceed 400MB 

 

4. Naming convention: please name your slide presentation using this format: 

 

[SESSION DAY (3-letter abbreviation)]_[SESSION START TIME]_MHSRS-22-#####_[Presenter Last name].pptx

 

Example: Wed_1530_MHSRS-22-01391_Smith.pptx

Speaker & Presentation Guidelines

  • All presentations should be saved in a PowerPoint format and cannot be larger than 400 MB.

  • Avoid slides with a lot of text, especially if it’s a repeat of what you’re saying out loud. We recommend not more than four bulleted items per slide.

  • Speakers should adhere to the designated speaking time listed on the agenda, which includes time for questions. Speaking times will be strictly enforced.

  • Wireless presentation tools such as laser pointers will NOT be provided.

  • For Department of Defense presenters, the individual presenter is responsible for obtaining the appropriate clearance from their local Public Affairs, OPSEC offices, or other organizational offices, as locally required, prior to presenting at MHSRS.

  • Download the Faculty Letter for Continuing Education for your presentation.

  • As a faculty member, you are required to disclose any personal financial interest or relationship that you have with companies whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients (ineligible companies). Toward this end, we ask that you complete and sign the Conflict of Interest Reporting Form that accompanies this letter. Please kindly return the completed document by July 27, 2022, via email to MHSRSspeakers@thinktbg.com.
