This is a one-year, full-time degree programme aimed at qualified dental clinicians looking to develop competency in clinical oral medicine. It focuses on the recognition, investigation, diagnosis and management of patients presenting with common oral and maxillofacial diseases and will provide a sound grounding in the fundamental principles of UK specialist practice. It also considers and incorporates the basic principles of evidence-based medicine that are relevant to clinical and modern translational practice.
Contemporary educational methods will be used to determine and monitor knowledge base, as well as using workplace-based assessments for clinical competency. You will be supervised by clinical and academic staff within an established and integrated specialist clinical training and educational environment. There will be continuous verbal feedback and support to help develop skills for individual reflection and self-assessment.
You will undertake either a clinical service review or a literature review, leading to the submission of a dissertation.
Virtual open week
This programme will be covered in our Oral and Dental Sciences webinar.
