Workshops for Young Prosthodontist Educators

Workshop for Early Career Prosthodontic Educators

IJP/Karlsruhe Workshop for Young Prosthodontic Educators (YPE)

Thanks to the generous contributions of ICP Members and Industry Sponsors, the ICP is proud to support the developing leadership in prosthodontics at the IJP/Karlsruhe Workshop for Young Prosthodontic Educators (YPE)

These unique Workshops result from the pro bono commitment of a faculty selected from the IJP’s editorial team and are organized by Professors George Zarb (Canada), Winfried Walther (Germany), John Hobkirk (United Kingdom) and Iven Klineberg (Australia). The faculty’s collective objective is to identify, support and nurture clinical scholarship and leadership. Up to 36 new and past participants are selected for the biennial four day programs. While Workshop Registration is free, all participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation arrangements and expenses. The ICP’s support for the Workshop also includes provision of limited and competitive assistance funding for participants from developing countries.

The next IJP/Karlsruhe Workshop for Young Prosthodontic Educators (YPE) is tentatively scheduled to take place in 2018, at the Institute for Continuing Professional Development in Karlsruhe, Germany. This seventh European Workshop is funded by Nobel Biocare, with additional support forthcoming from the International College of Prosthodontists (ICP), the Academy of Australian and New Zealand Prosthodontists (AANZP), and Quintessence Publishing Company, Chicago, USA.
Registration dates and details for this event will be announced soon.
