This course has been set up with the ultimate aim of producing high-quality Clinical Radiology consultants, capable of meeting the challenges of this dynamic and rapidly evolving specialty.

Radiology trainees are required to assimilate a large body of knowledge with which they will have been previously unfamiliar over a relatively short timescale, including detailed knowledge of imaging physics and anatomy as well as the full spectrum of disease processes and associated imaging features. The three clinical modules of the course provide a thorough grounding in these essential areas of knowledge. Generic professional skills do not always receive sufficient focus in everyday radiology training. Furthermore, despite the rapid advances being made in imaging technology, the number of radiologists actively engaged in high quality research remains small. The three professional modules of the course develop skills in the key domains of research, leadership and teaching. The dissertation component of the MSc provides the opportunity to undertake a supervised, high quality piece of research in a chosen subspecialty area.

COURSE STRUCTURE

Assessment for professional modules is by assignments of around 3,000 words and written examinations for clinical modules.

Teaching

These courses are taught by distance learning, and are structured to keep you on track throughout your studies. You never need to attend the university, and apart from the webinars, you can complete the online activities at times that work best for you.

The three-week induction at the start of the course gives you time to get to know the virtual learning environment, learn what electronic learning resources are available to you, and introduces you to each other and the course. You will also have the opportunity to improve your writing skills with online workshops. So when the forensic topics start, you are read to concentrate on the subject.

Weekly contact with your tutor and peers via instant messaging or email, for support when you want it.

Topics are delivered at a pace that gives you more time to learn about that area and relate this to your own practice.

Structured activities help you to think about each topic and discuss ideas with your peers – videos, screencasts, quizzes, directed reading, virtual workspace for discussion, and interactive and collaborative work.

Regular webinars where you and your peers join together online at the same time to engage in a teaching session with your tutor or other forensic specialist.

Webinars take place on an evening (6.30pm - 8.30pm) and there are approximately six per 12-14 week module.

Courtroom simulation – learn how to give evidence and experience being cross-examined.

International specialists in the field of forensics, demonstrating the multidisciplinary nature of forensic practice in mass fatalities incidents, will facilitate all sessions. Previously, these specialists have included forensic radiographers and technologists, consultant paediatricians, consultant paediatric radiologists, forensic pathologists, forensic biologists, forensic researchers, rorensic anthropologists, HM Coroner, and a post-mortem imaging service provider.

The assessment strategy is designed to be compatible with distance learning and to provide a variety of methods, enabling a more inclusive assessment strategy – written assignments and presentations. These are submitted online or presented in the webinar room.

Employability

The Society and College of Radiographers advocates that those who undertake forensic imaging examinations must be educated and trained at postgraduate level. This course addresses this. Successfully completion of the course enhances your career as a practitioner with specialist imaging skills.

Most advanced posts in the NHS require a master’s degree. If you plan to become the lead radiographer/technologist for forensic imaging in your department, the advanced skills you develop in this course will give you an advantage.

Feedback from previous students indicates that as a result of this course, they have become articulate and confident in presenting their research at conferences, aspiring, creative and confident in changing practice, aspiring to enhance practice resulting in promotion to forensic lead, and becoming more confident as a person. In addition, they have become articulate in writing at Level 7, critical of research, creative with learning and adaptable to learning and time management. Furthermore, they have been facilitated to be adaptable, confident, articulate leaders in forensic radiography with some becoming active committee members of the International Association of Forensic Radiographers, with some also engaging with the Department of Health and Home Office as a result, demonstrating the significant impact of this course on forensic imaging nationally and internationally.

You will receive close supervision and support when treating patients throughout the course. All clinical facilities, equipment and materials are provided.

What's so good about Prosthodontics at Dundee?

The School of Dentistry at the University of Dundee is based in the Dental School and Hospital and is located on the University's city campus. The Dental School, which was inaugurated in 1916, is at the forefront of research, teaching and clinical dental practice and benefits from being an integral part of the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing.

The Dental School performs consistently well in league tables for both research and teaching. The University of Dundee Dental School is a top UK dental school as noted in the Guardian University Guide 2011 and The Complete University Guide.

The Dental School has a reputation as a supportive and nurturing environment which gives students the opportunity to fulfil their aspirations to achieve excellence clinically and academically.

Teaching & Assessment

This course is taught by staff in the School of Dentistry.

The course is two years long and begins every second year, in September (2012, 2014, 2016 etc), and finishes at the end of June in the second year. Teaching follows the European week, i.e. Mondays to Fridays inclusive.

How you will be taught

Students will attend lectures, seminars and laboratory demonstrations. Students will treat patients under supervision on two half days per week, and carry out some of the laboratory work as advised by course tutors. More than one module may be taught concurrently and clinical work will be undertaken on regular sessions throughout the course.

Provision will be made for personal study time throughout the course and students are expected to make good use of this time to prepare for the assessments and to read widely on the subject of prosthodontics.

What you will study

Every candidate for the Degree shall be required to undertake the prescribed course of study and submit a dissertation. Candidates will be required to present themselves for examination, including oral examination.

The various aspects of fixed prosthodontics will be performed on a phantom head before proceeding to the clinic as it is considered important to thoroughly revise techniques to ensure a high standard of clinical work. This includes endodontics, post preparation, core build-ups and preparations for inlays, crowns, bridges and resin-retained bridges.

There are eight modules, all of which must be completed satisfactorily, together with a research project. The modules and their associated SCQF (the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework) credits are as follows:

Introductory module (20 credits)
Radiology Decontamination and infection control
Communication and IT skills
Clinical photography
Dental caries - diagnosis and management
Periodontal disease - diagnosis and management
Treatment planning in Restorative Dentistry
Health care law and administration
Complete dentures (20 credits)
Partial dentures (20 credits)
Operative and adhesive dentistry (20 credits)
Endodontics (20 credits)
Laboratory-fabricated restorations (20 credits)
Applied dental materials (20 credits)
Dentistry for the elderly (10 credits)
Dissertation, including research methods and basic statistics (30 credits)

How you will be assessed

Assessment will be comprised of a one-hour written short-answer examination for each taught module. Reports of four cases treated by the candidate will be presented to the external examiner at the final examination at the end of the course.

Students carry out a research project related to fixed and removable prosthodontics or dental materials and produce a typed and bound dissertation. This will include a critical review of the literature. It is anticipated that the proportion of time spent on the research project should be approximately 25% of the course.

The results of the module assessments and the logbook of clinical activity will be scrutinised by the examiners.

All components will carry equal weighting and candidates must achieve a pass in all examination.

Careers

This course provides good preparation for the MFDS examination of the Royal Colleges but is not approved for eligibility to sit the MRD examination.
