This programme is designed for dental graduates who wish to pursue further training in Dental Implantology.
By entering this programme you will embark on a course which includes extensive clinical training (60 per cent) formal teaching (25 per cent) and a supervised research project (15 per cent). All the taught and clinical modules in the programme are core teaching. You will however have considerable choice when selecting a topic for your research project.
The full programme includes patient diagnosis and treatment planning, implant placement, implant restoration and is integrated with some of the teaching in the Prosthodontics and of Periodontology Postgraduate programmes.
You will be assessed at the end of Year 1 by a single written examination paper and a clinical viva voce examination. At the end of the second year there are two written papers, four case presentations (two seen and two unseen) and a treatment planning exercise. You will also be assessed (viva voce exam) on your research report. At the moment all three major components of the second year exams (written, clinical, research) are equally weighted.
