Welcome address from Dean

Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry, RCSI
Dear Colleagues,
The RCSI Postgraduate Lecture series is
now in its fifth year. The purpose of the
programme is to provide an opportunity for
dentists who wish to update their knowledge
on the current concepts relative to general
dental practice and also for those who are
actively pursuing additional postgraduate
qualifications. Indeed the lectures are
particularly suited to preparation for the
Diploma of Primary Care Dentistry and MFD.
The lecture series combines basic sciences,
practice management, practical tips and
indeed the whole range of dental practice.
We are fortunate that the speakers who
have agreed to present at the meetings
are all experts in their chosen areas. You
will be familiar with some of these speakers
but the Faculty also actively encourages
more recently qualified colleagues, who
may be less well known, to present topics of
relevance.
A new innovation this year is the
introduction of a mornings hand on course
in endodontics which should be of interest
to all. In addition at the end of each of the
mornings there will be practical sessions of
particular interest to those who are taking
the Diploma of Primary Care Dentistry or
MFD examinations.
The format of the presentations is short
lecture based and the concept is “maximum
knowledge in minimum time.”
As part of the spring programme the Faculty
will hold an Intensive Revision Course on
March 28th 2015. This intensive review
course is increasingly being availed of as
a method of revision both for the Diploma
of Primary Care Dentistry and the MFD
examinations.
The excellent team of lecturers assembled
for the day have been given the brief of
providing information in the form of five tips
relevant to the area they have been asked to
present. There is a wide diversity of topics
from infection control to prosthodontics
and there will be practice question sessions
along with an exam overview to assist
potential candidates.
It promises to be an exciting, intensive day
and I look forward to seeing you there.
I hope you enjoy the programme and any
suggestions you have for improvements or
future topics are always welcome.
