ACERT is proud to offer opportunities for both faculty and students to get involved.
Students can showcase their original research in our student poster and student essay contests, and the
three minute thesis, while faculty can participate in the faculty poster presentation or apply for a
scholarship to help them level up their professional knowledge and skills.
Royal Domingo Student Essay Competition
The Royal Domingo Student Essay Competition allows students in a radiological imaging program to submit research papers
and compete with their colleagues from around the country. Essays will be judged and awarded a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place monetary
award. The winning essays will be displayed at the annual conference.
Elsevier Faculty Development Scholarship
For faculty pursuing an advanced degree the Elsevier Faculty Development Scholarship is available. Through our sponsoring
partner Elsevier, this scholarship is awarded to a deserving faculty who is enrolled in an advanced degree program.
Student Poster Competition
The ACERT Student Poster Competition allows students to display their informational or original research posters at the
annual conference. These posters will be judged and awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place monetary award. All posters will remain
on display throughout the conference.
Faculty Poster Presentation
All clinical and educator faculty are invited to display original posters and give brief presentations about their work to
attendees at the ACERT Conference. Content may highlight literature review, original research, or case study.
Three Minute Thesis
ACERT encourages undergraduate radiology students to flex their presentation skills during our 3MT competition. Three Minute
Thesis (3MT) is a research competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise challenges students to present
a compelling oration on a research topic and its significance in just three minutes. 3MT develops academic, presentation, and
research communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to effectively explain their research
in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
