|MFDS course in Dubai|
|Friday, 08 March 2013|
With the help of Fellows and Members based in the UAE, a team of three from the UK arranged the course and travelled to Dubai in December 2012.
The Dental Faculty were approached by Ahmed Al Desoky, an Oral Surgeon, to organise a Part 1 MFDS course in Dubai.
This was the first MFDS course held in Dubai and participants were attracted from all over the Gulf region. A hotel near the airport was the venue for four days of teaching and mock examination questions.
The participants gave positive feedback and found the course faculty particularly approachable, appreciating advice on the knowledge expected of candidates sitting the examination.
The course faculty also gained insight into the needs of non-UK based candidates. A hectic few days were followed by an eventful journey back to the UK with fog at Heathrow resulting in an unexpected night on the terminal floor.
