As part of a long-standing partnership with the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB), BOQ Specialist has revealed its fourth professional development grant - the ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary.
The bursary aims to acknowledge dental practices committed to quality learning and to fund further professional development for practitioners and professional staff members.
Commenting on the bursary, ADAVB President, Dr Susan Wise, said: “BOQ Specialist is a long serving industry partner and supporter of the ADAVB and we are delighted to collaborate again to offer the 2018 ADAVB BOQ Specialist Practice Bursary to ADAVB members in private practice. We are particularly proud to have a partner that supports continuous learning and development for the whole dental team, and this wonderful initiative also supports ADAVB’s core objective which is to maintain dentistry practice standards through training and education for the benefit and protection of the public and dental staff.”
In addition to a Certificate of Recognition, the $10,000 bursary includes $8,000 to be applied to CPD and training programs and $2,000 to be applied to ADAVB CPD courses. The winning practice will be featured in the ADAVB’s online and print publications and in BOQ Specialist’s own ‘Best Practice’ publication.
BOQ Specialist State Manager, Louis de Klerk said: “We are delighted to continue to offer the ADAVB/BOQ Specialist CPD Bursary for 2018 marking not only the strength of our partnership with the ADAVB but also our commitment to supporting the benefits of professional development in the industry”.
Yarra Valley based Dr Kathleen Walsh, winner of the 2017 bursary added: “Continuing education, in all facets, is the foundation of a successful practice. As a result of the bursary, we have been able to engage in some great training and development opportunities for staff members in order to better serve the needs of our patients and community.”
BOQ Specialist CEO, Hugh Lander concluded: “BOQ Specialist has provided distinctive banking solutions to dentists for over 25 years which means we deeply understand the importance of continued professional development within practices. We are proud to continue our partnership with ADAVB and through the bursary program support dental practices in delivering the highest quality care to their patients”.
