In partnership with the Australian Dental Association Queensland Branch (ADAQ), BOQ Specialist recently announced it will be offering two professional development grants in 2020 as part of the popular ADAQ and BOQ Specialist CPD Bursary program. 

Now in its fourth consecutive year, the bursary program aims to recognise dental practitioners that are committed to quality learning and to support their career development by funding continuing professional development. 

Valued at $5500 each, the ADAQ and BOQ Specialist CPD Bursaries are available to current members of ADAQ. 

This year, one bursary will be offered to a recent graduate member (with less than five years of work experience), and the other will be offered to an experienced practitioner (with over five years of work experience). 

The bursaries are to be applied towards ADAQ Continuing Professional Development events or certificate III or IV in Dental Assisting via the ADAQ Registered Training Organisation, and can be used for either self-development or development of practice staff. 

“We are delighted to partner with ADAQ once again to offer the ADAQ and BOQ Specialist CPD Bursaries,” BOQ Specialist’s state manager Jeff Miller said.

“Not only does this mark the strength of our long-standing relationship with ADAQ, but also our commitment to supporting professional development within the Queensland dental community.” 

The bursaries are open to ADAQ members, with submissions accepted until 5pm on Friday 6 November 2020. The bursaries will be awarded at the ADAQ Annual Clinic Day on Friday 27 November. 

The application form is available via the ADAQ website.
