School of Clinical Dentistry, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health
Dental professionals from all over the world come to Sheffield for masters courses that enhance their careers. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise places us fourth in the UK for research.

About the course
1 year full time

This course will equip you with a critical, systematic understanding of oral pathological conditions that require diagnosis by histopathological methods. You'll study the laboratory methods used to prepare oral diagnostic material for histopathological examination and the research tools used to advance the practice of diagnostic oral pathology.

You'll develop a competence in the microscopical diagnosis of common and significant oral pathological lesions. You'll also be able to determine if any further information or additional procedures are necessary to confirm a diagnosis.

Your career
Dental professionals choose Sheffield because of our reputation for excellence. We offer a range of clinical and non-clinical courses, designed to help you develop your career in the way that you want. Many of our graduates go on to specialist dental practice, hospital practice or academic posts.
