Collaborative group study is a proven method of enhancing professional knowledge. Our CE@DLC Program provides mentor-led group study through study clubs and Virtual Study Groups (VSG).

Virtual Study Groups (VSG)

VSGs allow participants to learn clinical content from experienced mentors and other professionals regardless of their location via case presentation and review. Like a study club without the hands-on component.

All clinical study mentors in our program are approved by the College of Dental Surgeons of BC. VSGs can be designed for dentists or any member of the dental team.

We also plan to offer group study opportunities on practice management topics.

Study Clubs

British Columbia has a proud history of active study clubs across the province. Surgical study clubs are considered by many to be the gold standard of skills enhancement. More than 20 study clubs are currently hosted at the BCDA Learning Centre (DLC) in addition to the Virtual Study Groups hosted on our CE Portal.

Study club mentors must be approved by the College of Dental Surgeons of BC. Once approved, a study club mentor may rent our lecture theatre and/or clinical operatories for their group. The BCDA's CE Program Committee does not approve study club mentor applications.

We promote new study clubs at the DLC on our CE@DLC Program Portal but registration is handled directly by the Mentor or designated study club contact.
