           transitional treatments
          More patients can be treated

    • Student Benefits

           (Extension of laboratory submission dates will be
           significantly extended)
          Lessen student stress in the final year
          Additional clinical experiences will further enhance

   What will be the cost of the Summer
    Clinic for students?
    • Tuition in Dentistry will rise in 2010-1011, but
      the increases are NOT related to the
      introduction of a Summer Clinic. Additional
      costs are covered by a Grant.

    • Students will lose a month of summer
      employment.

    • Students will need to cover the usual monthly
      living expenses.

   What will be the cost of the Summer
    Clinic for students?
    • OSAP will increase to a maximum of $14,700
      in the form of a $4,200 Grant and $10,500
      loan. This will result in an increase in loan
      repayment of $2,100 as compared to the
      current OSAP structure. This change is caused
      by an academic year that extends beyond 40
      weeks (Current Academic Year 38 Weeks –
      New Academic Year 43 Weeks)
        SUMMER CLINIC 2010
   Will the introduction of a Summer
    Clinic mean that students will
    graduate early?
    • No, students will continue to treat a full
      portfolio of patients until the end of the
      academic year in Year 4 / ITD 2.
                    Background
   As early as 1999 Dentistry has discussed and
    explored the need and feasibility of a Summer
    Clinic.
    • The results of a 1999 pilot study involving 20 randomly
      selected volunteer students showed strong support for
      the introduction of a summer clinic. 18/20 students
      rated the experience as valuable or very valuable.


   Most year 3/ITD 1 students are ready to begin
    complex comprehensive treatment early in
    Winter term.
                      Background
   Currently, the length of the academic year does
    not provide sufficient time for most students to
    complete cases.

   Many patients are left in treatment over an
    extended summer break. In some cases, this
    results in:
    •   Patient Attrition – loss of credit for work started
    •   Treatment Complications
    •   Changes in treatment plans
    •   Added student stresses related to clinic completion
              Future Benefit
   Changes in Curriculum plan for elective
    opportunities for senior students in their
    final year. With the addition of a Summer
    Clinic more senior students will be able to
    pursue electives either on or off base.
                    Time Line
   April 14 -   Student consultation
   April 23 -   Dentistry Council approval
   May 1 -      ECSC approval
   June 3 -     SCAPA approval
   June 19 -    Senate approval
   June 30 -    Students advised (email/web)
