The research program objectives were to stimulate student membership of the AmDA, introduce students to dental society activities, encourage original clinical work at the undergraduate level and to recognise future leaders in dentistry. Today, while there have been some changes in the recognition of the participation of dental schools, the basic structure of the program has not changed. The program gives the opportunity for each accredited dental school to select an outstanding undergraduate student to represent the dental school and present their research in a national competition. There are established guidelines and regulations that apply to the competition. Currently, there are 36 student clinician research programs worldwide. Every year there is an Annual Session that brings the respective winners from each country to the USA. The students become part of an international alumni opening up a wonderful opportunity of networking and mentoring and to become a leader in their careers. The Australian Dental Association and New Zealand Dental Association are involved in the Student Clinician Research Program bi-annual event held at the Australian Dental Congress. Griffith University was welcomed to the program this year, making a total of eight universities participating in the program. At the recent Australian Dental Congress held in Brisbane, another successful Student Clinician Research Program was held. Judging the research was held in the morning of 31 March with the winners being announced at the traditional Student Clinician 2011 aDa/DentSPLY Student clinician research Program ADA/Dentsply Student Clinician Research Program.
