Paper on the rural placement program

5 September 2012

Congratulations to Professor Andy Blinkhorn and George Johnson on the acceptance of their third paper to be published in the European Dental Journal on the rural placement program.

Their study highlights Sydney University, Faculty of Dentistry's leading role in rural education for dental students and shows the extent to which our students find the whole exercise important for training in clinical skills and communicating with patients.

The other interest finding is how much the patients appreciate the care and dedication of our students and the rural clinical supervisors have nothing but praise for the professionalism of the Sydney students. One clinical director in a remote rural area added that he wished he could take students all year long as it would reduce waiting lists and keep his patients well and happy!
