Academic Freedom and Professional Differences
Educational institutions have the responsibility to disseminate new knowledge. In so doing, some presentations may include controversial procedures, materials, or commercial references. Sponsorship of a dental continuing education course by ULSD does not imply endorsement of a particular philosophy, procedure, or product. Continuing education courses do not necessarily reflect the philosophies of the University of Louisville pre-doctoral or post-doctoral training programs.
Statement Regarding Use of Limited Knowledge when Incorporating New Techniques and Procedures into Practice
The University of Louisville School of Dentistry cautions continuing dental education participants that there are potential risks of using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures into the practice of dentistry, especially when the continuing education course has not provided supervised clinical experience and/or competency tests in the techniques or procedures.
ULSD offers some courses co-sponsored with other organizations, including some commercial companies. Such financial assistance allows us to afford nationally prominent speakers and to offer courses at lower fees. ULSD will identify co-sponsorship in program promotional material and will seek assurance by such speakers that balance and unbiased information.
