Le stage d'initiation à la vie professionnelle en odontologie : état des lieux national et perspectives d'évolution

Abstract : In France, since 2006, sixth-year students of short third cycle of dentistry have been doing a training in a dental practice with an approved dentist called vocational trainer. This training known as vocational initiation training, is an opportunity for the student to confront the liberal exercise. He discovers a new aspect of the profession by acquiring notions on practice management, on sterilization and on the administrative level. At the same time, he practices in partial autonomy under the supervision of his vocational trainer. In 2013, a publication by the National Order of Dentists reported on the differences that existed between vocational trainings on the national territory. Indeed, some students didn’t perform clinical acts during their vocational training or didn’t meet the minimum required duration. The aim of this work was to make a new inventory of the conduct of vocational trainings through a double national survey interviewing students and vocational trainers. The study carried out confirms and quantifies the heterogeneity of vocational trainings in dentistry. The vocational trainers identify the means lacking for the smooth running of these trainings. There are many prospects aiming at improving the vocational training in dentistry but they can only be implemented if academics and vocational trainers (or liberal practitioners) establish an alliance.
