General Practice Residency Program in Southeast Asia

Community service learning (CSL) is pedagogy of the General Practice Residency Program at UBC Dentistry. General practice residents (GPRs) are licensed dentists who receive advanced postgraduate training in several dental specialties. A variety of local, provincial and international learning opportunities are available to expand the comprehensive training each resident receives. International experience broadens the scope of learning to understand regional disease processes, treatment modalities and cultural competencies. UBC Dentistry places GPRs in Cambodia and Vietnam.

In the Vietnam Community Program, GPRs regularly rotate to the University of Ho Chi Minh, National Hospital of Odonto-Stomatology and Ho Chi Minh City Cancer Center.

In Cambodia, GPRs regularly rotate to Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap. Read more about one GPR’s experience in the Cambodia Community Program.

In April 2010, GPRs shared their experience with DMD students in Cambodia, as captured in Fourth-year DMD Student Elective: Cambodia.

Read what an advocate and a former GPR have to say about the program.
