Creating new pathways for dentists
     To enhance the clinical experience in real-life work settings of local dentistry graduates, the Government has proposed amendments to the Dental Registration Ordinance, which include a new requirement, whereby the new graduates from 2025 at the earliest will need to undergo a one-year internship.
     As with the current mentorship programme the Department of Health (DH) is offering to the new recruits, the internships will require the graduates to rotate through different positions within the DH or specified institutions.
     News.gov.hk interviewed the DH's representatives as well as newly recruited dentistry graduates taking part in the department's one-year mentorship programme to find out how internships can benefit the profession as a whole.
     The story is available at www.news.gov.hk/eng/feature today (April 21) in text and video format.
