Dental Oaths

The Faculty of Medical Sciences hosted the first Dental Oath Taking Ceremony in May, when the 2008-2009 graduates recited their medical oaths amongst their peers, faculty members and families. The ceremony, which was held at The Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt. Hope, preceded the Oath Taking Ceremony for the School of Medicine, and the award for Best Overall Performance went to Alana Tang Choon.

The UWI was also pleased that in the final DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) exams, all ten of the students from Botswana were successful, gaining several honours overall, and a distinction from Rose Phuthego.
