Canadian Dental Clinical Skills - Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Preparatory Course

Registration closes August 1, 2019.
This is a limited enrollment course.

The Canadian Dental Clinical Skills – PLA Preparatory Course is a mandatory twelve-week program for prospective applicants to the Schulich Dentistry Internationally Trained Dentists (ITD) Program, who plan on taking the August PLA.

The program will cover operative dentistry (lecture and simulation clinic), oral biology and will develop critical thinking skills; all of which are necessary for success in the ITD Program. This course is part of Schulich Dentistry’s Strategic Plan (2016-2026), which is to strengthen student knowledge as they enter the Schulich Dental School and in turn, enrich the quality of care for people in the community.

Applicants to the ITD Program must meet all the ITD Program admission requirements as listed on the ITD Program website, including successfully completing the Canadian Dental Clinical Skills - PLA Preparatory Course by the application deadline, in order to be selected for the August PLA.
