Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge
The Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge examination is the beginning of the 4 step journey towards the direct licensing process in Canada for foreign trained dental professionals and also is the foundation stone, allowing prospective candidates, admission to the university education for Canadian dental schools. The assessment is established on the basic theoretical knowledge of fundamental dentistry with a test comprising of 300 multiple choice questions designed to evaluate the clinical application capabilities of the candidate. Examinations are held twice every academic year (February and August) and stringent reviews of the recommended text books are expected of the candidates during the preparatory phase. Usually the favoured time frame for the preparation of the examination is about 4 – 6 months with about minimum 12 hours invested in studying per day.
The Academy of International Dental Education houses a plethora of various recommended study texts and conducts review classes for the examination within a period of 5 months. Discussion of fundamental principles, book reviews, conceptual reviews and self assessment quizzes form the mainframe of the academic program. An in-house library of all recommended textbooks is available at the Academy of Theoretical Studies that can be used for purpose of reading and reference.
