Joint international virtual case-based discussion
A virtual case-based discussion session was held between King’s College London and the Dubai based Mohammed College of Dental Medicine.
from both institutions engaged in the virtual discussions. Led by Professor Luigi Nibali from King’s College London and Dr Momen Atieh from the Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine, the event covered treatment planning of two complex cases affected by generalised periodontitis.
Said Professor Jenny Gallagher, Dean for International Affairs at King’s Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences: “What a great example of shared learning with colleagues in the Middle East. Technology provides an important resource at this time when we are unable to meet face-to-face. I suspect we will use it much more in future.”
Professor Nibali said: “Both sets of students and teachers enjoyed this session and especially the opportunity to see different ways of presenting and discussing cases and different points of view. Overall there was good agreement about the discussed treatment options.”
Zaid Baqain, Dean, Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine said: “It was very successful. I would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to your team, and we are hopeful that cooperation will continue between are graduate students and faculty.”
The institutions have a follow up session booked in the next few weeks and the Periodontology Department at King’s has held similar joint sessions with ACTA and HKU.
