Introduction
I am a Dental Surgeon and Associate Professor at the Universidad de los Andes, Santiago Chile. My research is focused on the teaching and assessment of learning in healthcare education. I was awarded a Chilean National Fund (Fondecyt #11150123) to improve the quality of teaching and learning through Curricular Alignment. I am currently developing a new Fondecyt Project (#1200547) that seeks to improve the transition of dental students from simulation to real clinical work.

Project
transition of dental undergraduate students, by initially diagnosing students and staff perceived challenges Chilean dental undergraduates face in terms of hands-on skills gap, perceived stresses and preparedness to treat patients’. Subsequently, an integrated and progressive four-years deliberate practice protocol using emerging technologies, which will probably be what students would be using in their future clinical practice, will be developed and implemented at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of los Andes, Santiago, Chile (Specific Objective N.2). The protocol will be specifically designed to develop undergraduate year-1 through year-5 dental students’ competencies to treat real patients and facilitate, motivate and accelerate their preclinical to clinical transition. The deliberate practice protocol will be permanently monitored, and its impact will be assessed each semester by using approval rates, computer-aided training and assessment analytics. The students’ perceived stresses and preparedness to treat patients, as well as the clinical competency perceptions of their clinical instructors, will be assessed during the development and at the end of the project.
