Last Friday UP had a visit from a delegation from Malaysia’s largest public university – UiTM (Universiti Technologi Mara). The group of academics and dental students from the Faculty of Dentistry had been in Cambodia to participate in a volunteer program in one province. During the meeting with UP staff and the Director of Research, Dr Tineke Water, fruitful discussions were held on academic and student exchanges, and future collaborative research. UiTM offered UP the chance to join in a multi-center study field-testing a new App they have developed to teach dental students the inferior dental nerve block injection technique on a mannequin fitted with sensors, and with visual and audio feedback. They, like us, also have a strong interest in research into oral cancer, which is also prevalent in Malaysia. The team leader, Professor Hazmyr, Head of OMF Surgery, extended a warm invitation for UP staff and students to attend their UiTM Dental Students’ Scientific Conference in mid-February 2019. Several overseas dental schools join this conference which includes a range of activities including oral and poster presentations, 3-minute thesis presentations, a suturing competition, table clinics, and video and photography competitions. 10 UP dental students will be going to spend a week on exchange at UiTM later this year.
