TLDR; Please check out our website to get more information on our faculty-wide cookbook: Temerty Faculty of Medicine Crowdsourced Cookbook. Submit your recipes before Monday, April 4th! See below for details.

Calling ALL departments of Temerty Faculty of Medicine: on behalf of LMP, we are proud to announce the second volume of the Temerty Faculty of Medicine Crowdsourced Cookbook!

This initiative is an effort to unify our diverse departments through a means apart from science while also supporting our local communities to fight against food insecurity. All members (learners, faculty, and staff) of the Temerty Faculty of Medicine are welcome to participate! Everyone is encouraged to submit one or more home-cooked recipes to the cookbook. These cookbooks will be available to everyone on a donation-basis. Most importantly, all proceeds received through this initiative will be donated to Feed Ontario to help feed our community members in need. You do not have to submit a recipe to donate to the cause, but we encourage everyone to take this opportunity to showcase your creative skills in the kitchen!

Sign up for this year’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition!

Your graduate research. 3 minutes. 1 slide.

Every year, the University of Toronto’s 3MT competition challenges graduate students across the three campuses to present their research to a generalist audience in 3 minutes or less, with the help of just 1 static slide. In this year’s virtual competition, participants will move through a round of preliminary heats, with winners advancing to the semi-finals and then the final, where they’ll present to an audience of their peers as well as a diverse panel of judges from across the university. The university-wide winner gets a cash prize, as well as the chance to compete in the provincial-level competition. From there, they can go on to showcase their research at the national and international level.

Who it’s for: All graduate students registered in a doctoral program or a master’s program with a thesis or major research project at the time of the 3MT competition.

What’s in it for you: A great opportunity to practise public speaking, profile your research, compete in a supportive environment, and connect with your peers. (Bonuses: Fun and glory, plus cash prizes for first, second, and third place.)

Competition dates: Heats will begin on March 8, with the final taking placing on April 7, 2022, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. See the full competition schedule with dates and times on our website.

Sign me up! Please complete our registration form by 1 pm on February 14, 2022. We’ll contact you with details about your heat by the week of February 23, 2022.

Questions about rules, eligibility, judging criteria? All the details are on our website. You’ll also find videos of winners from previous years as well as resources for crafting your presentation.

Looking for inspiration? Read about our 2021 first-place winner Faraz Alidina, who went on to win the Northeastern Association of Graduate Schools (NAGS) competition or learn how our 2020 winner Amalia Gil impressed us with her research on identifying distractions during surgery with eye tracking.
