90 Minute Workshop
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
Collaboration is essential to developing new models to assess overall competency, "entrustability" and readiness for practice. This session will introduce concepts of assessment of competency, readiness for practice and entrustability from other health professions and new models being developed in the United States and abroad, and will provide opportunities for the audience to participate in collaborative efforts to change assessment in dentistry, including evaluation of entrustability, and open new paths to licensure. A national expert will present concepts and emerging innovations in medical education, two dentistry examples will be discussed, and the audience will be challenged through discussion and debate with a panel to change assessment in dental education through collaboration.
