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 are the result of the pro bono commitment of an international faculty of clinical educators selected from the IJP's editorial team. The workshops are organized by Professors George Zarb (Canada), Winfried Walther (Germany), John Hobkirk (United Kingdom) and Iven Klineberg (Australia), and seek to nurture younger clinical academics in their pursuit of scholarly leadership in the discipline.

The selection is limited to 36 new and past participants for free registration for the 4-day program. 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 seventh biennial IJP/Karlsruhe Workshop for Young Prosthodontic Educators (YPE) took place October 7-10, 2018 at the Institute for Continuing Professional Development in Karlsruhe, Germany. This seventh European Workshop was funded by Nobel Biocare, with additional support from the International College of Prosthodontists (ICP), the Academy of Australian and New Zealand Prosthodontists (AANZP), and Quintessence Publishing Company, Chicago, USA.

The next YPE Workshop 2020 date to be announced.
