The ABAOMS Education Committee group has produced information on undergraduate education. Please see the pages on our work on this website.
Background to the Group
The ABAOMS education committee was first convened in 2005 in response to the publication of the “Profile and Competencies for the European Dentist” (Plasschaert et al 2004). It consists of representatives from every dental school in the UK (15), one postgraduate institute and one Irish dental school. Dr Michaelina Macluskey (Dundee Dental School) chaired the group through the development of the UK curriculum for undergraduate oral surgery. This is now published and a pdf can be found in the published work section of this site.
Dr Macluskey is currently chair of the committee for a second time with current research and development focuses on the development of clinical competence in surgical skills. Further information on the current work of the committee can be found on this site.
