W&H – Promoción activa para jóvenes odontólogos

La Asociación Europea de Estudiantes de Odontología (European Dental Students Association, EDSA) ofrece a estudiantes europeos de odontología una plataforma crucial para el intercambio y la difusión de conocimientos especializados. En estrecha colaboración con empresas del sector, la EDSA busca ofrecer a sus miembros oportunidades innovadoras para la formación continuada. Desde hace algunos años, W&H respalda a esta reputada organización en un gran número de actividades. Un objetivo esencial es promocionar de manera activa la formación de los futuros odontólogos y establecer desde el principio buenas relaciones con las nuevas generaciones de dentistas. Una herramienta importante para conseguirlo es el área exclusiva para estudiantes del novedoso sitio web de W&H, wh.com. Además de noticias y novedades de la odontología actual, se incluyen vídeos didácticos diseñados a la medida de las necesidades de los estudiantes, un extenso glosario odontológico e informaciones destacadas sobre la disciplina. A través del intercambio con los estudiantes, la empresa acompaña siempre los contenidos teóricos con conocimientos de relevancia práctica.

Para el presidente de la EDSA, Luka Banjšak, la implicación de W&H en la formación supone un apoyo crucial. Los años de fructífera colaboración con la empresa austriaca de odontología será, también de cara al futuro, un elemento importante para que los estudiantes tengan la posibilidad de conocer las últimas tecnologías y tendencias de la medicina dental.

EDSA W&H Partnership

Dear students,

It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to the student section of the W&H website. W&H and EDSA have established a longterm partnership- a partnership between a professional quality dental brand and a student association with dentists of the future eager to learn and discover all new technologies and tools that will enable them to practice high quality dentistry when they finish their studies. W&H offers students explanatory videos in various fields of dentistry including: endodontics, oral surgery, implantology, periodontology, restoration, prosthetics and many more! This has helped numerous students in the comprehension of the technical aspects via a very friendly way-through video! EDSA is constantly striving to open more and more possibilities to its members with education being one of our top priorities. Integration of various different methods of learning helps students move away from the monotony and expand their interests, and learning techniques.
W&H is one of the pioneers of integrating student education in their functioning curriculum. This is also the reason why EDSA has established a very healthy partnership with W&H. Evidence based data is one of the main pillars for training a highly motivated “dentist of the future”.
I would seize this chance to invite our members and all active dental students to join us on a couple of our upcoming events:
Firstly, following our General Assembly meeting in Coimbra, Portugal, EDSA in collaboration with the Croatian dental student’s association, is hosting the 6th Virtual World Congress of Dental Students from 4th to the 6th of May 2016. This is an international online congress available to all students worldwide, and enables them to present their undergraduate student papers, as well as postgraduate! Many well-known lecturers from faculties from all over the world will be joining us and presenting all sorts of different topics connected with dental medicine.
Following that we will have the EDSA Summer Camp in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on which we will have around 50 students from all over Europe. The aim of the Summer Camp is to expand the horizons of students in the field of education. Every year we cover a different theme in the Biomedicine field and host international lectures, and naturally, everything takes place in the “Pearl of the Adriatic”-the historical city of Dubrovnik.
In the summer EDSA will have the next General Assembly meeting in Barcelona, Spain where the new elections of the executive board will take place amongst the usual discussions regarding the functioning of the Association. At the same time some of our members will be attending the Pamoja Volunteer Work programme in Tanzania. The Volunteer Work programme is mainly funded by fundraisers organised by students as the cost is very high-but at the same time the benefits and assistance provided to our colleagues in Tanzania is very rewarding and gives us all pride in hosting the project itself!
Hopefully all of you can benefit from the existing student sites from W&H and have become even more interested in the business of EDSA!

All the best,

Luka Banjšak
