Who Should Attend?

The QS Subject Focus Summit on Dentistry should be attended by everyone involved in the management of a school of dentistry, or a related academic department. The Summit is highly relevant for both ‘insiders’, such as deans, department chairs, academics, professional administrators and student representatives, as well as external stakeholders from government and industry, who work with schools of dentistry and depend on them to deliver outstanding workforce-ready graduates and relevant, high impact research.

In addition to these two groups, persons from other academic disciplines, the media, academics and consultants in technology management or higher education management, and those involved in university planning and rankings will find the Summit a useful microcosm of the management challenges and opportunities present in academic departments in the healthcare field. As universities are increasingly expected to not just educate, but to also contribute to economic and technological innovation, these issues have broad social and economic relevance.
