Mentorship is the holy grail of your initial years after graduation. But it is hard to come by and cannot be expected in your job.
Dr Stephen Dudgeon and Dr Eli Burger saw this struggle and decided to help change it. In 2014 they introduced the Australian Dental Graduate of the Year Award and subsequently provided the Australian Dental Mini Residency to the runners up and winner of this award.
From first hand experience I know this is an excellent foundation for those lucky enough to be able to attend the course.
The planned chat with Stephen and Eli will have to wait, Eli was unwell however we were lucky enough to spend an hour with Stephen.
