This committee consists of six full-time faculty, elected by the Faculty Assembly and three students (one each from the second, third, and fourth-year classes). The Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs & Quality, the Quality Assurance Director and a member of the UF IT staff will serve as ex-officio members. The committee elects the chairperson and vice-chairperson from among the members. For more information, please refer to the college’s Constitution and Bylaws.

Standing Committee Charge

As stated in the Constitution and Bylaws, it is the responsibility of this committee to expedite operations in the student clinics, to determine optimal instrument requirements for students, to update the Clinic Procedure Manual, and to advise the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs & Quality on clinic operatory utilization in all dental clinics. This committee also is responsible for addressing college-wide quality assurance issues and updating the Quality Assurance Manual in conjunction with the Quality Assurance Director.

Individual Faculty Member Responsibilities

Members of this committee are expected to attend a monthly meeting of the full committee lasting one hour. The full committee meeting is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month during lunch.

Additionally, some members are assigned to a subcommittee through which much of the work of the committee is carried out. Subcommittees are expected to meet at least once per semester for about 1 hour. These meetings are also usually held over the lunch hour. In addition, separate workgroups and project assignments may be required.

Time commitment: Approximately 1-2 hours per month.
