International Dental Summer School 2011 is the second generation of captivating Summer school organized by Dental School of Muhammadiyah University of Yogyakarta Indonesia. The program is combining academic and clinical activity .The aims of IDSS are to broaden students’ knowledge in Dental Health care in Indonesia and to let International students gain practical experience in Dentistry that as we know, in developing country everyone will witness the impact of poverty on dental health that in conclusion the quantity and quality of dental morbidity is way higher than we find in western countries. IDSS also allows participants to perform subjective and objective examination, diagnose and treatment in modified Problem Based Learning system. There are 2 major programs that IDSS offers. First is Educational program that consist of Activities in University, Clinical Visits and Voluntary work.
The second one is Non-Educational Program with some intercultural activities and city tour. IDSS is already arranged in 3 weeks program with different topic each week. Preventive and Promotive/ Prophilaxis Dentistry for the 1st week followed by Curative and Rehabilitative Dentistry ( ART and LSTR 3 Mix MP) and Herbal medicine and Acupuncture. The educational program requires some layers of education which started with the class and followed by tutorial discussion, Skill lab activity, clinical visit and voluntary work, and ended with case report presentation.
The main clinical activity of International Dental Summer School 2011 was Voluntary work. The activity was conducted in a village that indeed has high number of cases. The participants worked on some divisions based on the operator’s chart such as Sterilization, Physical Examination, Operator Assistance, Prescription, and Public Dissemination (to do such fun dental education with villagers), curative treatment ( ART, 3MP and extraction ). The activities were all actually the extension of skill lab activity in which after getting the basic knowledge and skill training, the students were expected to become all capable to do anything needed in Voluntary Work.
There were 12 participants participated IDSS 2011. They’re coming from Poland, Taiwan, Czech, Slovakia, Denmark, Finland, and Turkey. All participants had accomplished Educational Program very well. It’s really great to see their enthusiasm and and excitement on the program . For the detail of IDSS 2011 itself, IDSS 2011 had 2 new programs. First was Village Day which let participants experience how to be Indonesian Villagers. The participants would do the same activities as what the local villagers do. The tour around the village would be prior to other activities. This would be continued by villagers activities in such as Rice field digging, traditional game and sport, fish farming, bathing the cows, planting the corn and so forth. In the night time, the participants and the committee members slept in Villager’s house and socialize with the people surrounding. .The second one was Social Work and Trauma Healing Project that was conducted in a Shelter of Merapi volcanic refugees. The purpose of this project was to heal the psychological trauma on the refugees and also to perform a social work with the local government.
