Third Edition of the Student Mentoring Programme
In September training for the third class of students to participate in the Student Mentoring Programme (Alumno - Mentor) went ahead in the Faculty of Dentistry. Dr Antoni M. Lluch, the programme director, and Edith Castellarnau, from the Training and Development Department, recently started training students.
The aim of the programme is for participating students to help their third year classmates who will soon be starting their work experience at the University Dental Clinic. The importance of teamwork, communication and emotional intelligence when dealing with classmates and patients are the competences the Student Mentoring Programme is based on. The results obtained so far have been presented at national and international conferences and the success of the programme was endorsed through the award of a grant from the Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE).
