OET: OCCUPATIONAL ENGLISH TEST>> TIPS & TRICKS


Remember, they're only evaluating english at your workplace, not your dental knowledge.

KEY FACTOR is a positive attitude to the exam, cos there is very less to prepare for such an exam. These kind of exams require you to be more relaxed than get worked up.

WRITING
* Check various reference letters online- basically be familiar with the PATTERN
*Be BRIEF... its not a case sheet writing
*Have your address/reg no, patients D.O.B/address/, date, signature... etc (constant factors)
*you should have an intro describing patient n complain
*you should have the relevant history (dental/med/drug if imp) and clinical/radiographic findings that you do know
*Request update on treatment (optional)
*Mention to 'contact you for any further queries or additional information on patient'.
*If referral is for a medical consultation, then describe briefly date of procedure, the procedure itself, selected tooth, LA admin(if any), post op complication, post op medication, etc

READING

*Its just like the comprehensive exam taken throughout our school days- The only thing diff is that its medical topics instead.
*Its very direct, you can read again to confirm
*Answer to the point!


LISTENING

*Again pretty much the same as reading- very direct. And just keep your ears open.
*Most common mistake done- WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT P***AGES THAT ARE OVER, cos that would affect your ATTENTION for next exercises


SPEAKING
*Here they'll judge how comfortably you handle english with a patient
*Be very RELAXED.
*Use the FULL time given to think, scribble your points and then start to converse.
*Be patient, HEAR all that the patient (examiner) has to say.
*Speak slow- u need to be CLEAR
*Ask leading questions, like you would in a practice
*Be POLITE, do not offend them by saying eg. "You/your kid has bad oral hygiene, etc"
.... instead try saying things like "Oral hygiene is fine, but it can be further improved by"...
*Always be CALM and CONFIDENT... Remember you are a doctor (its ok even if you dont know full treatment)
*Recall patient for review
*SMILE always!
*Examiners are nice people.. so DONT be prejudiced

ABOUT ENTRY TO AUSTRAILIA, FOR INDIAN AND FOREIGN TRAINED DENTISTS.





Introduction
This is for information and guidance of overseas trained dentists who wish to obtain recognition of their qualifications in Australia and become registered to practise dentistry. It is intended as a guide only, and is not legally binding on any of the bodies or agencies listed. The information given is believed to be accurate at the time of printing, however requirements for recognition may vary from time to time.

If you live overseas and are a dentist with a qualification gained outside Australia or a qualification in dentistry gained from an Australian tertiary institution and you intend to migrate and work in this profession in Australia, you should first contact the nearest Australian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. Information relating to the general skilled migration program, including requirements for assessment of skills and qualifications, is available in the General Skilled Migration booklet. This can be purchased from the nearest Australian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate.

If you are already in Australia but need a skills assessment to support an application to change your immigration status, you should seek the advice of the Department of Immigration, Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA) in your State or Territory.

Dentistry in Australia
Australia has a federal system of government and is divided into six States and two Territories. Each Australian State and Territory has separate legislation covering the recognition of dental qualifications. To practise dentistry you have to be registered with the local State or Territory Dental Board. The steps you need to take to obtain registration as a dentist in Australia are explained below.

Dentists work in general practice or specialise in one of the following principal fields: Orthodontics, Periodontics, Paediatric (children's) Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Endodontics and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Dentists trained in Australia must meet the entry requirements of one of the Australian institutions offering dental courses, and then complete the required full-time academic training (approximately five years) leading to a dental degree. If dentists wish to specialise, they must complete extra study after having had clinical experience.

The Universities of Adelaide, Melbourne, Queensland, Sydney and Western Australia all offer dental degree courses. Griffith University commenced a program in 2004. The qualifications awarded by these schools satisfy the formal academic requirements for registration of all Australian Dental Boards. The addresses of Dental Schools and Dental Boards are listed at the end of this document.

Procedures for Assessment and Recognition of Overseas Qualification
There are three ways in which overseas qualified dentists can enter the profession in Australia: by enrolling at an Australian dental school where they may be granted some credit for previous study, by immediate recognition of their existing qualifications or by successfully completing the Australian Dental Council (ADC) examinations.



Qualifications Immediately Acceptable to Registration Boards
Dentists with a Bachelor degree obtained from the United Kingdom or Ireland may have qualifications which may be acceptable to Dental Registration Boards for immediate registration.

Under the Mutual Recognition Act 1992, subject to certain conditions, if a person is registered to practise an occupation in one State or Territory they can carry out an equivalent occupation in any other State or Territory. Under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Arrangement (TTMRA) individuals registered or licensed to practise an occupation in New Zealand are entitled to practise the equivalent occupation in any Australian State and Territory and visa versa. The Mutual Recognition Act and the TTMRA apply irrespective of where training was undertaken.

To find out if you can obtain registration under the provisions of the Mutual Recognition Act or the TTMRA you should contact the relevant registration authority in the Australian State or Territory in which you intend to practise.

As the acceptability of any dental qualification may change from time to time, you should seek up-to-date information from the Registration Boards.



Qualifications Not Immediately Acceptable to Registration Boards


If your qualifications do not immediately meet Australian requirements, there are two options. The first is to complete an Australian dental degree course at one of the Australian Universities listed at the end of this document.

The second option is to undertake the examination procedure conducted by the ADC described below.



ADC Examinations

The Australian Dental Council (ADC) is the organisation responsible for assessing overseas trained dentists to enable them to obtain registration in Australia. The ADC also accredits Australian Dental Schools courses leading to registrable qualifications. The dental boards, the dental schools, the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, the Australian Dental Association, the Australian Dental & Oral Health Therapists Association and the Dental Hygienists Association of Australia are represented on the ADC.

Eligibility criteria
Overseas trained dentists are eligible to undertake the ADC examination procedure if they have completed and passed a dental degree which included at least four years' full-time academic study at a university recognised by the ADC and are registered as a dentist in their country of training or practice.

Immune Status
Australian dental institutions are committed to, and have a responsibility to ensure that staff and patients are safeguarded.

Prior to giving an ADC candidate access to clinical facilities for examination purposes, dental hospitals may require a routine assessment of disease history and immune status. This is already in place in some States.

Immunisation, immune response to immunisation, and disease history for tuberculosis, rubella, measles, mumps, chickenpox, herpes simplex virus, and hepatitis B virus may need to be documented.

Some States require that health care workers should be immunised for Hepatitis B and have demonstrated levels of immunity. All operators who will treat patients will be expected to not pose a risk of Hep B transmission to patients or staff. In some States a copy of dates of records of completed Hep B immunisations and of serological screen, to confirm immunity, must be provided prior to an examination. All information provided to the dental hospital remains confidential.

Candidates should ensure that they know their status and advise the ADC if they anticipate that they may not be able to meet the hospitals’ requirements.

Examination Procedures
The ADC examination procedures have been developed specifically to assess the qualifications of overseas trained dentists whose qualifications are not accepted as a basis for registration by Australian Dental Boards.

The examination procedure consists of three parts an Occupational English Test (OET); a Preliminary Examination (Multiple Choice Questions and Short Answer questions); and a Final Examination(Clinical). These must be taken sequentially.


Preliminary Examination

The Preliminary Examination is a written examination in multiple choice and short written answer format. It is designed to test your knowledge of the practice of dentistry and of clinical and technical procedures as they are practised in Australia. Previous examination papers are not available, but sample multiple choice questions are made available to enrolled candidates.

Unlimited attempts are permitted for this examination. A pass is valid for three years.

Final Examination - Clinical


In order to be eligible to sit for the Final Examination you must pass the Preliminary Examination.

The Clinical examination is held over three to six days and includes the following three blocks:

* Conservative Dentistry - Operative Dentistry and Paediatric Dentistry;
* Treatment Planning -including consideration of Periodontics and Removable Prosthodontics;
* Oral Surgery, Oral Diagnosis and Radiology.

Aspects of all clinical disciplines such as Orthodontics, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology and Pharmacology will be included where appropriate (practical and/or theoretical and/or viva voce). You will be examined at a level no less than that reached by graduates from Australian universities.

Unlimited attempts are permitted for this examination but it must be undertaken within three years of passing the Preliminary Examination.

In the event that applications exceed available places in this examination, a system of priority will be applied:

* first attempt candidates will have priority over repeat attempt candidates;
* the scheduling of first attempt candidates will take into consideration the time since they sat and qualified at the Preliminary Examinations (i.e. shorter time period)
* candidates will be ranked in merit order of their overall score achieved in the Preliminary Examination;
* candidates with fewer repeat attempts will have priority over candidates with a higher number of repeat attempts.

Candidates will be notified of acceptance, the venue and times at least one month before the examination date.

Examination Venues and Training
If you live overseas, you may take the OET and the ADC Preliminary Examination at an overseas venue. Availability of venues varies and some venues may not be available for a particular session. All visa and travel arrangements are the responsibility of the candidate. Candidates should ensure that they are able to travel to the nominated venue. If you are in Australia, you can sit both these examinations in any of the State capital cities and some larger provincial centres.

The Preliminary Examination is usually held in the first week of March and in the first week of September each year. You are allowed unlimited attempts at this examination, but a new fee must be paid for each attempt.

The Final Examination is held only in Australia. Candidates resident outside Australia may be able to obtain a temporary entry visa, at their own expense, to cover the trip to Australia to attend the examination. You are allowed unlimited attempts at this Examination, but a new fee must be paid for each attempt.

ADC Certificate
An ADC Certificate is issued upon successful completion of the ADC examination procedure. The ADC Certificate entitles you to apply for registration with any of the Australian Dental Boards.
