MClin Dent Prosthodontics
Two years full-time
This programme is designed for dental graduates who wish to pursue a career in Prosthodontics. The programme can contribute the first two years of clinical training leading to Membership in Restorative Dentistry of The Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh following successful completion of an optional third year of training which is available through competitive entry. For UK / EEC applicants wishing to be entered on the GDC specialist list this option must be agreed by The London Deanery prior to entry.
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 30 modules covering all aspects of fixed prosthodontics, removable prosthodontics, implantology and related subjects. A special aspect of this programme is attendance on new patient diagnostic clinics which allows the student to be able to formulate complex treatment plans.
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, two case presentations, a treatment planning exercise, a clinical test in both fixed and removable prosthodontics. 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.
