The Fellowship Review Course is a review of currently accepted knowledge, techniques and practices in general dentistry. Members may sit for this course as part of their preparation for the Fellowship Exam; however, taking this course does not guarantee that a member will pass the exam. Information on the content of the Fellowship Exam is held in strictest confidence, and as such, information regarding the overall content of the exam will not be released during the review course or to the course speaker. Candidates may refresh their knowledge of basic clinical information in the 17 areas of general dentistry covered in the exam by attending the review course. Candidates are expected to draw on their own practical experiences as they take the Fellowship Exam.
At the end of the two-day review course, attendees will have:
• Reviewed the 17 areas of general dentistry
• Been provided the opportunity to discuss and explore questions pertinent to the areas reviewed
• Engaged other attendees to discuss the 17 areas of dentistry
• Been provided information about the Fellowship Exam
