Description

Advertisement

This programme offers dental graduates a comprehensive grounding in five key training areas: basic sciences and their application to modern day dental practice, principles of clinical issues in dentistry, principles of communication skills, principles of professionalism and principles of management and leadership. This programme aims to recognise previous professional experience and to augment and develop that experience.

Two pathways are available. Both provide strong foundations for continuing postgraduate study. Students wishing to undertake the Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties professional examinations (MJDF) are recommended to apply for the core pathway. The enhanced pathway is recommended for those students seeking both Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties professional examinations (MJDF) and the overseas Registration Examination (ORE) or possible progression to a clinical MSc or MClinDent programme.

Programme outline

The syllabus is taught through lectures, seminars, tutorials and symposia. Communication and IT skills are developed through weekly journal club reports and presentations on dental and clinical governance topics. Students will be tutored in Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) and Structured Clinical Reasoning (SCR) exams using the facilities in the newly equipped state-of-the-art Dental skills laboratory

All students will observe current UK dental practice via clinics in Oral Medicine, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Periodontology, Paediatric dentistry, Orthodontics, Sedation and General Anaesthesia. They will practice taking radiographs using phantom heads. The enhanced pathway offers students greater emphasis on clinical skills development, using phantom head and teeth.

Students will prepare and continuously update a Professional Development Portfolio for gathering evidence on lectures, tutorials, clinics, self study and self reflection sessions. Upon completion of the programme, students will attain certificates in core skills, required for continuing professional development (CPD).

Assessment Students are continuously assessed through written multiple-choice papers in single-best answer (SBA) and extended matching questions (EMQ) format. The final examination will include two written papers, an OSCE and SCR exam. An audit project and clinical case presentation will also form part of the final programme assessment.
