VIVA Prep Session for University Students

Event Details


This presentation (by current VIVA examiners) will provide case examples as a working platform of what to expect in a VIVA examination. They will cover the main topic areas including:

  • Treatment planning sequence
  • Medical histories and medications
  • Lifestyle factors

These principles will then be applied to work through mock cases in a similar format to a VIVA examination. The cases will work through identifying risk factors and modifying factors for oral disease, diagnostics, treatment planning options and prognosis.
