A senior lecturer from Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry has received a prestigious European award.
Kamran Ali is one of two recipients of the Association for Dental Education in Europe’s (ADEE) 40th anniversary scholarship.
‘Our congratulations go to Kamran for this most significant achievement,’ Professor Christopher Tredwin, head of Plymouth University Peninsula School of Dentistry, said.
‘Ensuring our dental students are fully competent and ready to enter the workplace when they graduate is key to our ongoing success, which is why Kamran’s PhD project is so important.
‘We are delighted that his work has received this international attention.’
Kamran will receive a monetary award, which will go towards fees related to his PhD programme in dentistry (dental education) titled: Preparedness of dental graduates for foundation training.
The scholarship programme recognises the research of ADEE members in the advancement of dental education.
The ADEE executive considered Kamran’s work to be of relevance and importance to its mission and objectives.
Kamran will receive his award at the ADEE meeting in Szeged, Hungary, in August.
