2013 STUDENT WORKSHOP
Careers in Academic Dentistry
The Network for Canadian Oral Health Research (NCOHR) hosted the first Canadian dental research student workshop: Careers in Academic Dentistry on June 10 - 11 at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University.
Forty students, from 9 Canadian dental programs, attended presentations from clinician scientists and basic science researchers. Along with poster presentations, topics included effective writing for graduate school, leadership in academic institutions and the role of the dental clinician scientist. The workshop was live-streamed, and included up to 37 on-line participants at one time.
A major outcome of the workshop was mobilization of the Canadian Oral Health Student Research Group. The student group Facebook site currently has 158 members, with local coordinators at most universities.
