Why you should study the MSc in Oral Medicine

"I have very rarely, if ever, taken verbal examinations. This changed as I got to Bristol. Being examined by world-renowned, well-published attendings would make even the most knowledgeable student uneasy. Surely enough, by the end of the year, I feel uniquely prepared to tackle the clinical questions that any residency attending would ask. I would do so using these same skills that I have heaped, scraped up, and struggled upon during my time here. Therefore, when asked how far I’ve come clinically since that moment before I got to Bristol, I have only this to say; as far as the east is from the west, and as differing as day and night."  Simone Sealy, MSc Oral Medicine graduate
