KARACHI: The Department of Prosthodontics, Bahria University Medical and Dental College (BUMDC), recently organized clinical case-based presentations. The competition was held amongst the final year BDS students posted in Prosthodontics OPD.
Dr Talha Tanveer, MClinDent, Prosthodontics, was the event’s judge, and Prof. Dr Saman Hakeem, Head of Department of Prosthodontics, BUMDC, presented the awards to the winner. The event was facilitated by Dr Fatima Hassan, Senior Registrar, Prosthodontics, BUMDC and Dr Asim Monpuri, Senior Registrar, Prosthodontics, BUMDC. All students were judged based on their performance and the content of the presentations.
Recognizing the need for research in dentistry, the concept behind this competition was to indulge the clinical students in the research-based phenomena and acknowledge them about literature searches related to their clinical cases. The competition was based on their clinical cases. Each of those cases was made according to the preplanned outline provided to the students by the facilitator. The presentations incorporated history, examination, and framing a problem list based on cast analysis, leading to treatment plans. Moreover, the final treatment was backed up by a literature search in case report studies. The presentations were followed by an interactive session between judges and the participants.
At the end of the competition, the winners, Shehzadi Rubab, followed by Ammara Noor and Saleha Mahmood, were awarded the Certificate of Appreciation for their excellent presentations skills.
