Dr. Karsten Priehn was invited as trainer of the three chief dentist teaching at the institute; the overall objective being that students will be given the very best instructions in how to protect their occupational health, as part the ‘dental toolbox’ they receive while being educated at ZMK Bern. As in the point of view by Dr. Priehn, “it is an enormous advantage for dental students to gain their primary learning experience from working with the Basic Concept 3 dental units from the very beginning of their professional career”.
The first Trainer of Trainers Day also marks the launch of a new strategic initiative - namely to create a competence center for ergonomy in dentistry, which otherwise all too often is given a second priority in the curriculum at many dental universities.
