Information for Graduates of Non-accredited Programs

(www.acfd.ca)



The Association of Canadian Faculties of Dentistry (ACFD/AFDC) facilitates graduates of non-accredited dental programs in becoming licensed practitioners in Canada by providing the Eligibility Examination/Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) for general dentists and the Dental Specialty Core Knowledge Examination (DSCKE) for graduates of specialty programs.


The Eligibility Examination is currently an admissions requirement used by dental education institutions that provide a Qualifying Program or a Degree Completion Program for general dentists. In 2010, the PLA will replace the Eligibility Examination as the requirement for entry into these programs.


The DSCKE is used to facilitate the admission process for entry into Dental Specialty Assessment and Training Programs (DSATP) offered at various Canadian faculties of dentistry.

I do not understand the following statement,
The DSCKE is used to facilitate the admission process for entry into Dental Specialty Assessment and Training Programs (DSATP) offered at various Canadian faculties of dentistry.
Does it mean a separate program for people with speciality?

Lolitadento, do not get frustrated.Give your best for EE in May'09 and do not change your field.If you want you can give NBDE and try in US schools.It is easier to get admission there.

BDDS there is no information on the ACFD website about the PLA. For the time being the EE is maintained.
There might be minor changes to EE which will be posted in November, however it is expected that the current path will be maintained.
This is the information I am getting from the ACFD web-site.
May I know where did you get your information?
Is your information official?
Can we have a link to a website where we can read your information?
