As part of the week-long 45th Hannover-Bristol Dental School Exchange, Chair Ann Kennard gave an illustrated presentation showing the history of the overall city partnership, in the context of the 71 years of Bristol-Hannover Council. The students of the Medizinische Hochschule in Hannover were involved in very practical experience at Bristol’s Dental School, learning about dentistry and how it is taught at Bristol, “having a go at things” hands-on (we will avoid the gory details!), learning clinical skills, as well as observing clinical practice in different settings. In addition students learned about Bristol and its history. For example in Photo-orienteering students found the clock with London-Bristol time hands on it, and found out about the floating harbour, as well as visiting some of Bristol’s tourism highlights, such as M-Shed, Bristol Cathedral and the Suspension Bridge. None had been to Bristol before, but now they know a lot more about the links between our two cities.
