    The concept of the continuum of dental education has undoubtedly been strengthened by the GDC’s educational initiatives over the past few years. In the revised First Five Years document, published in August 2002, the emphasis has shifted from recommendations in the undergraduate curriculum to learning outcomes, which encompass the wider needs of the dental professional. This includes behavioural sciences, communication skills, ethical and cultural awareness and team-working. The main message is that undergraduate education is the start of a continuum of lifelong learning, and courses will need to ensure that these professional skills, personal development and self assessment through reflection are all taught (or their learning facilitated) in the new curriculum.
