Abstract

Background: During the fourth Summer Camp (SC) held by the European Association of Osseointegration (EAO), 20 junior representatives from various European and non-European universities and associations were selected to partake in oral presentation and communication skill development.
Aims: The aim of the EAO Summer Camp (EAO SC) was to identify new methods of enhancing participants' abilities to engage, influence and lead in a professional environment, on both a clinical and scientific level.
Materials and methods: Four different groups were assigned to discuss one of two topics: (1) an Implant Register and (2) Digital Dentistry. The method that was used during the EAO SC, for training presentation skills, was the 4MAT learning model. The 4MAT learning model is a framework for creating an engaged, dynamic and more involved style of training by accurately visualizing the learning process that each learner goes through.
Results and conclusions: All four groups, including each participant, presented outcomes in the format of 4MAT learning model answering four key questions, the Why, the What, the How and the What if. After the event, each group prepared a written summary of the thought processes. The outcome of the summer camp, for the chosen participants, was gaining skills to engage and influence in a professional environment, both clinically and scientifically. It was also expected from participants to share gained knowledge in their own respective environments after the EAO Summer Camp had ended. In conclusion, most of participants gained a valuable insight into presentation skills and also demonstrated their enthusiasm by presenting their experience at universities, institutes and clinics.
Keywords: 4MAT; An Implant Register; Digital dentistry; communication; presentation skills.
