Establishment of the Centre for Dental Education, An Interprofessional Educational Initiative
The Yenepoya Dental Education Unit (YDEU), addresses the reform needed in the dental education system, to bring the field out of the silos. Each dental school has its educational vision, mission, program outcomes, teaching methods, and assessments, which are currently taught and assessed in silos. Present and future health workforces are facing increasing pressures in terms of the demand on health resources and increasingly complex health issues. Based on the current scenario and workforce requirements, in order to address the health problems we require a collaborative health workforce and interprofessional education is the way to go and its incorporation in the dental syllabus is the best way forward.
