Continuing professional education is recognized as an important mission of contemporary dental schools. Research has shown that innovative methods of course delivery result in increased impact of continuing education efforts as measured by change in behaviour of the participants in their own workplaces. A case study is reported which describes the Carolina Institute of Dental Radiology Education. This 2-week intensive course for dental radiology instructors is offered by the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. A survey of participants indicated that significant improvements in the radiology programmes supervised by the participants occurred following their attendance at the Institute.
