Round 1 | Boston University vs. University of New England

In light of clinic time lost to COVID-19, many dental students have struggled to complete their graduation requirements. Most dental schools’ clinical education model requires students to complete a numerical threshold of procedures to demonstrate competency – a points system. The numerical requirements are discipline-based. In recent years, some dental schools have revised their clinical education models.


Watch the first round now here as BU and UNE debate discipline-based numerical clinical requirements!
