Topics that will be covered in this webinar include:

  • The changing landscape of leadership education and development
  • Consider skills that impact on dento-legal outcomes
  • Leadership qualities and training in postgraduate dental education

Participants can expect to hear from renowned experts in dentistry and a panel discussion with the speakers to end the webinar.
