International Dentist Degree Program (IDDP)


On-site Assessment - Track A

The On-site Assessment will be held in late July/early August of the year preceding entry into the program. It consists of two days of psychomotor skills practice, a two day psychomotor skills assessment, an interview, a short essay and an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination).

During the On-Site Assessment week, applicants may also have opportunities to meet faculty and students in the undergraduate program and to be familiar with the College and the City of Winnipeg.

There is a non-refundable On-site Assessment Fee of $1300.00 CDN.

Components of the On-site Assessment:

  1. Personal Interview
    The personal interview will be conducted by a single panel of university members and will last approximately half an hour. Its purpose is to learn more about the educational and work experience of the candidate, as well as assess candidate’s ability to communicate in English. The interview will assess aspects of the candidate's life/practice experiences relevant to their application to the University of Manitoba’s IDDP.
  2. Psychomotor Skills Assessment
    These will involve tooth preparation and/or placement of restorations on typodonts. Details of these exercises will be provided to those selected for the On-site Assessment.
  3. Essay
    Applicants will be asked to write an impromptu one page essay on a given topic to further assess the candidate's ability to communicate in English.


    An Objective Structured Clinical Examination will be given on the morning of day 5 of the Onsite Assessment.
