Presentation of research in progress and dissemination of study results is a fundamental part of working in the field of research. Postdocs will be provided multiple opportunities to further their public speaking skills and ability to tailor scientific messages to different audiences through the postdoc journal club, Marshfield Clinic Research Institute (MCRI) scientists group, and scientific seminars.
Postdoc Journal Club
The Postdoc Journal Club allows for the opportunity to conduct an in-depth examination of recent publications in the scientific literature. Discussions are led through a rotating roster of the current fellows, and meets during the noon hour the third Monday of each month. The presentation schedule can be found on the Postdoc Journal Club webpage.
MCRI Scientific Seminar
The MCRI Scientific Seminar series brings speakers from a variety of research fields to Marshfield to present on their area of expertise and to highlight important health research around the world. Presenting annually on this platform provides the opportunity for fellows to connect and build relationships with current MCRI scientists and Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) clinicians to develop the foundation needed for future research collaborations while sharing the specific current work occurring within the postdoc program. Through attending the series fellows have the opportunity to advance knowledge on a specific topic and share new work that is happening in the field. Sessions are held twice monthly during the noon hour, typically on Wednesday. Presentation information can be found on the MCRI Scientific Seminar webpage. The Postdoc presentation schedule, and recordings can be found on the Postdoc Scientific Seminar webpage.
MCHS Grand Rounds
The Grand Rounds series, hosted by MCHS provides a continuing education credit platform that focuses on educational topics to provide system-wide providers and staff the most up-to-date health care information available to enhance patient care. Presentations are held each Friday during the noon hour, in the Robert F. Froehlke Auditorium. The presentation schedule, and previous presentation recordings can be found on the Continuing Medical Education SharePoint page.

The MCRI series events include research based presentations, demonstrations, and training opportunities. Topics include REDCap training and overviews of the MCRI Grant and Contract system/process, Research Navigation resource, and Scientific Writing process. These events are open to MCHS clinicians and all MCRI staff, and provide a platform for investigators, clinicians, and staff to understand the roles and responsibilities, resources, and program development processes that accompany conducting research. Through attendance at these events fellows establish relationships with MCRI staff and develop a general understanding of conducting research at MCRI. Event date and times vary and can be found on the MCRI Event Calendar SharePoint page.
