Recent dental graduates
Am I eligible?
Are you graduating this year or have you graduated in the last three years? You may be eligible for membership with a recent graduate basis which has a low membership fee to support young professionals in the early stages of their career. You are not eligible for a recent graduate basis if you have commenced a dental specialist training program.
Junior dental practitioners are at far greater risk of complaints, claims and investigations than their medical counterparts at the same stage of their careers. Dentists face heightened risks because they can easily work unsupervised unlike doctors in hospitals or they may be working in rural areas where it is not possible to refer to an experienced colleague easily. This makes MIPS membership all the more important, for both the indemnity insurance cover and the 24-hour Medico-Legal Support provided.
You can apply for the new dental graduate category anytime in your final year of study or when you commence your first year of practice. Membership for new dental graduates is free from when you complete your studies to the next 30 June.
Conduct a detailed online health check and access 6 to 10 week nutritional, physical or mental health programs.
