10:15 – 11:45 AM  PechaKucha Presentations:

PechaKucha comes from the Japanese term for “conversation” or “chit chat.” These are brief presentations with 20 slides proceeding automatically at a pace of 20 seconds each (i.e., the total presentation time is 6 minutes, 40 seconds). Some PechaKucha hosts even have a gong if the presenter goes over their time! These short, concise presentations are being used more in medical meetings nationwide. We are excited to bring them to our 6th Annual Faculty Development Conference.
