Assessment of Clinical Skills
The “Mount Everest” of the equivalency process is the clinical practical examination which candidates find often the most challenging. The assessment consists of 12 clinical procedures which includes restorative, prosthodontics, record keeping and infection control. With a given 14 hours approximately spread over two days, the examination will gauge the ability of a candidate to complete the given 12 procedures within the time limit and efficiency cited as per the protocol given by the board examiners. This is an attempt to evaluate mental, physical and emotional handling characteristics of the candidate during the 2 day exam.
The Academy of International Dental Education will consider all proficient skills of the candidate to put forward the best possible equation balancing the elements of precise dexterity, physical endurance coupled with effective time management. The program curriculum will consist of scheduled demonstrations, personal assessment and timely mock examinations.
