The Faculty of Dentistry RCSI will host a Post-Primary Careers Day event on Saturday, January 18th 2020. This event is aimed at transition year students, along with 5th & 6th years, who are interested in a career in dentistry.
Whilst the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland does not presently have a Dental School, the Faculty recognises its responsibility for public engagement to attract and retain a new generation of dentists. Consequently, the Faculty sees this event as an extremely important opportunity to raise the awareness of dentistry both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
For those students that travel to the RCSI on the day, they can expect fantastic presentations from senior academic staff from all three Dental Schools on the island of Ireland (Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork and Queens University Belfast) describing what their Dental Schools can offer students if they choose to study dentistry.
In addition, we will have speakers from different sectors of dentistry along with undergraduate student and graduate student presentations on their experience of dentistry.
Following the formal presentations, we plan to allow the delegates to meet the admissions teams from each Dental School, along with dental student representatives. There will also be interactive stations and students will be able to meet and ask questions of dentists who practice in various fields.
