دعا نقيب أطباء الأسنان الدكتور ابراهيم الطراونة إلى تطوير البرنامج الشامل في زراعة الأسنان الذي يعقده مركز الاستشارات  في الجامعة الأردنية بحيث يأخذ مسارا أكاديميا ويمنح درجة علمية.

 

وقال خلال كلمته في حفل تخريج الفوج الثالث من منتسبي البرنامج الذي لاقى اهتماما دوليا، إنه يعد أنموذجا في العلاقة التكاملية بين النقابة ومؤسسات طب الأسنان المختلفة، ويرقى إلى آن يأخذ شكل الدرجات العلمية حيث يعقد بواقع200 ساعة تدريبية بإشراف نخبة من الأكاديميين المتميزين على مستوى القطاع.

 

وكشف الطراونة عن توجه الهيئة الأردنية لزراعة الأسنان  ضم جميع خريجي الفوج الثالث من البرنامج إلى عضوية الهيئة، نظرا للمستوى المتميز الذي يتمتعون به، ما يعزز من نتاجات الهيئة ومخرجاتها.

 

من جانبه هنأ عميد كلية طب الأسنان الدكتور زيد بقاعين الخريجين وذويهم، ولفت إلى أن البرنامج يعد باكورة أعمال الكلية في التعليم المستمر المتمثل في رسالة الجامعة الرامية إلى إنتاج المعرفة النظرية والتطبيقية ونشرها، والإسهام بشكل فعال في بناء ثقافة التعلم مدى الحياة، في ظل التغيير المستمر في المتطلبات العملية والتكنولوجية لبيئات العمل.

 

وأكد بقاعين سعي الكلية الدائم  إلى إعداد طبيب أسنان مؤهل بجميع المعارف والمهارات والكفايات التي يتطلبها عمله من خلال توفير بيئة تعليمية وتعلمية وبحثية وفق أحدث معايير الجودة وبأحدث الأساليب في إطار التعلم الصحي وتوفير المختبرات والعيادات الطلابية المجهزة بالتقنيات والأدوات والأجهزة الحديثة.

 

منسق لجنة البرنامج الدكتور أشرف أبو كركي قدم خلال كلمته إيجازا حول نشأة البرنامج وتطوره، مشيرا إلى أن بروز الحاجة لأطباء أسنان عامين مؤهلين في زراعة الأسنان شكلت الغاية من إنشاءه سعيا إلى سد الفجوة بين طبيب الأسنان العام وطبيب الاختصاص.

 

إلى ذلك قال مدير مركز الاستشارات محمد المعاقبة: إن البرنامج يأتي ضمن رؤية المركز في ربط الجامعة بالمجتمع بهدف تطويره وتدريب افراده والتفاعل معه والنهوض به من خلال تقديم خدمات تدريبية واستشارية منافسة عالية الجودة وتطوير حلول خلاقة وإبداعية لمواكبة متطلبات سوق العمل ورفده وتلبية احتياجاته من الكفاءات المؤهلة على أعلى المستويات بما يسهم في رفع سوية الأداء.

 

بدوره ثمن مدير شركة سيدارا لتطوير المشاريع (إحدى شركاء البرنامج) الدكتور رائد شحادة الدور الذي اضطلعت به مؤسسات الجامعة الأردنية المختلفة في إنجاح الشراكة بين القطاعين العام والخاص ليكون البرنامج نتاجا طيبا لهذه الشراكة.

 

يشار إلى أن البرنامج يعقد للعام الثالث على التوالي وينفذه مركز الاستشارات بالتنسيق مع كلية طب الأسنان ونقابة أطباء الأسنان وبالتعاون مع الجمعية الألمانية لزراعة الأسنان شركة سيدارا لتطوير المشاريع.
