The Deans of the Dental Faculties of Edinburgh, England and Glasgow are pleased to announce inter-collegiate agreement on the introduction of tri-collegiate specialty membership examinations. Each examination under development (currently Paediatric Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Special Care Dentistry) will be administered by one College, on behalf of all three. The first diets of these tri-collegiate examinations will be held in 2012.
The development and implementation of the examinations will be overseen by the Tri-collegiate Specialty Membership Executive.
The Deans have agreed that in future they will work towards tri-collegiate arrangements for the remaining specialty membership examinations but until such arrangements are agreed they will continue to operate under existing arrangements.
