Peterborough Scheme Study Days
Since December 2010, the home of the Peterborough Scheme is the all new Learning Centre located on the 4th floor of the new Peterborough City Hospital. Traveling by car, the Hospital is easily reached from the A1(M), and Peterborough is only 50 minutes by rail from King's Cross. Parking is in the hospital's multi-storey car park and the fee is reduced to £2 for the whole day. Two thirds of the year's study days are held in one of the many seminar rooms available to us, and we have the use of clinical skills room when we have a hands-on training session. The remaining study days involve away days such as meetings arranged for the Region with other schemes, visits to the BDA and GDC, visits to other dental practices and laboratories, and also the BDA Conference.
Amongst the other facilities boasted by the learning centre are the latest audio-visual facilities, a library with internet access, and we have a refectory within the learning centre that offers hot and cold snacks. Also during lunchtime, you may take refreshments from Starbucks or the restaurant within the hospital grounds.
Organised for you to take place on study days will be a variety of educational activities designed to aid learning and development. These include presentations, hands-on sessions, group work, case-based discussions, peer review, group problem solving and other interactive exercises. All participants are encouraged to share their knowledge and experience so as to enhance and advance peer learning.
