2018年3月5-8日に,本学顎顔面補綴学分野がInternational College of Prosthodontistsの教育ワークショップ奨学金を受賞したことを受け、International Workshop for Young Maxillofacial Prosthetic Educatorsを東京医科歯科大学にて開催する。
選考を経て選ばれた,世界で顎顔面補顎学教育に携わる12名の若手教育者が4大陸から集い、世界唯一の顎顔面補綴学の専門機関である我々が実施している卒前卒後の顎顔面補綴教育方法を学ぶことがワークショップの目的である。

顎義歯外来での臨床見学,顎顔面補綴学分野の研究技術の供覧を通じて,トップレベルの専門集団の温度を感じ,これらを教育に活かすためのディスカッションを行う。顎顔面補綴学の教育の前進は,近年増加の傾向をたどる舌癌などの頭頸部癌患者の術後のQOL改善につながる。また,今なお世界で起きている闘争,内戦により不幸にも頭頸部に損傷を受けた人々の救いにもなる。そして口唇裂口蓋裂のような先天的顎欠損患者への一助にもなる。
顎顔面補綴治療の底上げに直結するであろう本ワークショップは,世界唯一の顎顔面補綴学分野の専門チームである東京医科歯科大学顎顔面補綴学分野のリーダーシップを示すのみならず、東京医科歯科大学のプレゼンスを示すことと,確信している。


International Workshop for Young Maxillofacial Prosthetic Educators (yMPE)

Maxillofacial prosthetic education plays a vital role in providing patients with maxillofacial defects access to specialists equipped with the appropriate attitudes, knowledge, and competence to apply their skills towards providing the most effective prosthetic rehabilitation treatment. As the number of graduates from recognized maxillofacial prosthetics programs is increasing year by year, it is important to improve and develop the teaching and clinical skills for young educators. This is a first workshop of biannual-based workshops. This workshop will take place March 5-8, 2019 at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU), Tokyo, Japan. It will be organized by the Department of Maxillofacial Prosthetics of TMDU and supported by an education grant funded by the Education and Research Foundation of the International College of Prosthodontists (ICP). This workshop is also sponsored by the International Journal of Maxillofacial Prosthetics (iJMP).

  • • Introduce up to date digital technologies that used in the education and research for maxillofacial prosthetics and discuss the benefits that can be used for teaching purposes.
  • • Develop and improve the clinical supervision of students for young educators through clinical observation and discussion of various maxillofacial defect cases and propose the effective prosthetic treatment for these cases.
  • • Develop and improve the research methodology for young maxillofacial prosthetic educators through review of various journal articles dealing maxillofacial prosthetics.

This is a 4-day workshop program that will be limited to 12 young maxillofacial prosthetic educators worldwide with a 60 % of participation selection is given for educators from developing countries. Candidates should be early career academic staff attached to an educational institution that provides maxillofacial prosthetic education courses and clinical services for maxillofacial defect patients.
