Finding the evidence in ‘evidence-based practice’

G WangThe Summer Student Research Program gives dentistry students a chance to participate directly in the science that informs their clinical work. The best way for dentistry students to understand what it means to practice evidence-based dentistry, is to be directly involved in finding that evidence. Being exposed to research early on in their careers helps students develop important critical-thinking skills vital to the practice.

That’s where the Summer Student Research Program comes in. Each year, when their classmates have packed up their dental kits and gone home for the summer, a select group of students are working away on answering important research questions. These students are given the opportunity to contribute to clinical and basic science research under the supervision of faculty members at the School. They cap off their experience by presenting their work as part of Dentistry’s annual Research Day.  Read article in The Bridge
