Sydney, 28 September 2021
Applications are now open for the 2021 Australian Dental Association New South Wales (ADA NSW) and BOQ Specialist Recent Graduate Grant, which assists the career growth and development of a young NSW dental graduate.
The successful applicant of this year’s Grant, which recognises a demonstrable commitment to high-quality ongoing professional development, will receive $5000 towards career development training within the ADA NSW Centre for Professional Development (CPD). A runners-up prize of $2500 will again also be offered this year.
ADA NSW President Dr Kathleen Matthews said she was delighted to again offer the Grant for recent graduate members to help them gain an edge in a competitive talent pool.
“BOQ Specialist has been a long-serving and greatly appreciated industry partner and supporter of ADA NSW,” Dr Matthews said. “We are very grateful for their support of the Grant once again.
“ADA NSW CPD is the leading provider of professional development activities for dentists and their teams in Australia. With more than 300 clinical lectures and workshops run by CPD per year, it offers world-class facilities and support providing a diverse range of educational programs by renowned local national and international presenters for the whole dental team.
“This is a terrific opportunity for those relatively new to dentistry to earn subsidised places on CPD courses of their choice, enhance their professional development and further boost their skills base and knowledge. I strongly encourage all eligible applicants to apply.”
The Grant is open to any financial ADA NSW Member who completed their studies in the years 2014 to 2020 and is not serving a current term in office on the ADA NSW Board or Council. The successful applicant will be required to outline how the Grant will advance their career and other eligibility criteria also applies.
BOQ Specialist CEO Keith Strachan said: “BOQ Specialist is proud to partner with ADA NSW to support our next generation of dentists through the Recent Graduate Grant.
“We have providing distinctive banking solutions to dentists for over 30 years so we understand importance of continued professional development, especially at the beginning of their careers. This year’s grant is a great opportunity to recognise and reward those new practitioners who, despite the current challenges faced, remain committed to their ongoing education and to delivering the highest quality of care to their patients,” he said.
