Year 3 Dental Students Have OSCE Exam Before Starting Clinic Next Week

56 year three dental students have just completed their preclinical OSCE exam and are now ready to start treating patients for the first time next week as they start Year 4. The SIM lab was unavoidably delayed last semester by COVID-19, but ran very successfully in the semester break thanks to our dedicated team of tutors who closely supervised the students as they learned a wide range of basic clinical skills.

The OSCE exam consisted of 14 stations, and although students were anxious, they performed very well. We believe the students are now ready for the next important step in their journey to become a highly skilled dentist. All UP staff and students (and their friends and families) are welcome to come along for a free check-up.
