Manual for Development of General Practice Residency Programs in Dentistry. Special Issue.
Journal and Dental Education, v43 n6 Jun 1979
The manual for the development of general practice residency programs in dentistry is designed to be used in three regional workshops to train individuals representing institutions who wish to develop such programs. The first of three major sections in the manual reviews the historical background of general practice residency programs. In the second section the following six areas are identified as part of the organization and development of general practice residency programs: human and institutional support, financial considerations, development and retention of dental administrative and teaching staff, selection of residents, orientation and integration of residents into the institution, and methods for program evaluation. In the third section areas of instruction in general practice residency programs are explored, including a dental didactic program, clinical dentistry assignments, and hospital training and medical assignments. For each chapter an introduction, statement of the objectives, and worksheet are provided. Appended are a budget development model, a description of a service-oriented ambulatory care model, income and cost analysis figures, and examples of a resident manual and didactic activities.
