As a mentor, OCE examiner, faculty for OCE preparatory course in (2008/2009), member of the Examination Committee (EC), Part Leader for the EC OCE subcommittee and now chair of the OCE, Dr. Wilson brings her strong knowledge foundation of evidenced based dentistry and commitment to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines to ensure the OCE is thorough, precise and a fair measure of a candidate’s knowledge in clinical pediatric dentistry.
In collaboration with the members and Part Leaders of the EC OCE Subcommittee that she routinely evaluates, Dr. Wilson will develop the OCE for review of the OCE Liaison and ultimately approval by the ABPD. At the annual Examination Committee Workshop, Dr. Wilson will collaboratively review vignettes with members of the EC OCE Subcommittee and both Part Leaders of the EC OCE Subcommittee to ensure that tasks are met and the examination construction is consistent with the timeline and criteria set forth by the ABPD. Keeping current with the progress to the OCE development process, Dr. Wilson will review and edit the EC OCE Subcommittee Handbook. Prior to the examination, Dr. Wilson will review images at the testing center to ensure the examination presentation logistics are on target prior to the arrival of the candidates.
ABPD is excited to welcome Anne to the OCE Committee and looking forward to working with her in all aspects of the Oral Clinical Examination.
