Dental students often have a lot of questions surrounding the NBDE Part 1. What are the specifics of the exam, eligibility, topics tested and format. What are some of the best materials to use and what can you do to prepare yourself for success. Schulich dental candidate 2022, Saif Matti will be live on Zoom sharing his tips.

A word from our speaker: “Due to the current circumstances around the world and in nearby communities, I ask that those attending this session donate an amount of their choice to a meaningful cause or charity, as a show of support for those most in need. We have come so far, yet still have so far to go. I recommend donating to LUSO as a worthy cause. It’s an organization that focuses on inclusion, diversity and youth. As a child growing up in London, Ontario, they would come to our schools and speak to us and I found it quite moving and powerful. Here is a link to their website: http://www.lusocentre.org/.”
