Welcome from the COHA Organising Committee

Greetings and welcome to Melbourne.

The University of Melbourne is very excited to be hosting COHA face-to-face this year, which hasn’t happened since 2019. We are looking forward to bringing oral health academics together from Australia, New Zealand and Fiji to discuss all things related to assessment and feedback.

This is a great opportunity to share your work, or the work of your students, with oral health academic colleagues.

We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne.
