Dental specialists are an integral part of the workforce, entrusted with translating scientific evidence and chair-side observations into future best practices for the profession. This talk will justify the critical need to embed clinical research training within dental postgraduate training programs. Presenters will provide an overview of translational biomedical research and the imperative for research translation in improved health care to the community and describe how a core curriculum in clinical and translational research methodology can be incorporated into speciality training. Resources for clinical research training and development of faculty mentors and trainees will be presented.
