ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary

Proudly suporting the Victorian dental industry

The ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary is a professional development grant that was launched in 2015 as part of a long standing partnership with the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) and BOQ Specialist.

The practice bursary is open to ADAVB member owned private practices and aims to acknowledge dental practices committed to quality learning and to fund further professional development for practitioners and professional staff members.

The bursary is a grant of $10,000 to be used for professional development and training purposes, of which $2000 must be used for CPD courses and/or training programs offered by the ADAVB.

Applications for the 2020 ADAVB BOQ Specialist CPD Practice Bursary are now closed. The successful recipient will be announced shortly.
