3 Minute Thesis Competition


The College of Graduate Health Science would like to invite graduate students to participate in the Three Minute Thesis Competition!

The event will be held on Friday October 26 from 5:30 pm – 7 pm in the Freedman Auditorium of the Hamilton Eye Institute on UTHSC campus. Food will be provided!

An 80,000-word thesis typically takes nine hours to present. Could you present yours in three minutes?

Since 2015, the international Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition has helped graduate students hone their communication skills by challenging them to share their research in three minutes in a way anyone could understand. Accept the challenge!

Why participate in 3MT?

  • Competitors will have 3 minutes and 1 static PowerPoint slide to summarize their entire thesis.
  • It’s a good opportunity to publicize your research, build your communication skills and enrich your CV.
  • Cash prizes will be given to 1st and 2nd place winners as well as the people’s choice.
  • The 1st place winner chosen by the judges will have a chance to participate in the regional 3MT competition with travel paid for by UTHSC.

Please consider participating in this opportunity to improve your skills as a researcher!
