Description:
Between 1985 and 1990, financial stringencies imposed severe strains on the medical career structure, on postgraduate training capabilities and on the adequacy of educational funding at local levels. The Postgraduate Medical and Dental Board found that, despite excellent support from the Department of Health, it was very difficult to maintain momentum. On the positive side, the Board was able to designate 10 new areas, with tutors, for the Continuing ,Education of General Practitioners. This brings the total number of such areas to 13 - almost half the number required for a national network. We were also able to appoint, on a part-time basis, a National Director for such activities. Continuing dental education has blossomed and the Board can report that four Regional Committees, with course organisers, are now in place and very active. Up to 3 more, however, are needed to adequately serve the community. It will be necessary, in the near future, to consider the desirability of introducing Vocational Training for General Dental Practice. Career guidance has also been emphasised but the value and effect of this has been sadly eroded by negative factors which will be outlined below.
