@ASDAnet #ASDAnet Similar Policies ADA 20H Resolved, that the Association supports the elimination of human subjects/patients in the clinical licensure process with the exception of the curriculum integrated format within dental schools, and be it further, Resolved, that the Association encourages all states to adopt methodologies for licensure that are consistent with this policy.
@ASDAnet #ASDAnet Curriculum Integrated Format Definition “…it should be performed by candidates on patients of record, whenever possible, within an appropriately sequenced treatment plan. The competencies assessed by the clinical examining agency should be selected components of current dental education program curricula.
@ASDAnet #ASDAnet Curriculum Integrated Format Definition All portions of this assessment are available at multiple times within each institution during dental school to ensure that patient care is accomplished within an appropriate treatment plan and allow candidates to remediate and retake any portions of the assessment which they have not successfully completed.”
