FURTHER INFORMATION

Our MSc Prosthodontics programme provides the busy General Dental Practitioner with a part-time educational route to acquire the skills and knowledge required of a Dentist with Special Interest (DwiSI). This programme focuses on contemporary practice, teaching evidence-based principles and systems to ensure an optimal outcome for the patient and practitioner.

During the course (2 years PGDip; 3 years MSc) you will be expected to attend up to 15 study/assessment days per year. Many of these sessions will be within the School of Medicine and Dentistry on the main UCLan Preston Campus, though some sessions will be timetabled in the UCLan Dental Clinic, where you will observe, assist and ultimately lead in clinical treatment. To accompany the study days, much of the course content, including lecture notes, PowerPoint slides, videos of lectures and assignments will be delivered to you via the University’s Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) allowing you to both prepare work for study days and undertake additional work independently from your home location.

Work in the early part of the course will comprise plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility and work on pigs heads and similar systems. As you move through the course you will progress to working on live patients under close supervision within UCLan Dental Clinic Facility. Here skills will be developed and assessed through Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS). The academic underpinning that supports this discipline will be developed though plenary lectures, directed reading and case-based discussions, which you and others in the group will be expected to prepare and lead. Group sizes are generally small (typically 12 per cohort) leading to an informal and supportive learning environment where you can ensure that your own learning needs are being met.

We must of course have assessments and examinations, these are designed to develop and test your core knowledge and skills at regular intervals throughout the programme. Assessments focus on your higher levels skills of diagnosis and planning, rather than simply remembering facts. Typical assessments would include analysis of given clinical cases OSCEs, mini clinical examinations and essays.

Course details

- Description

This course is suited to dentists who have an established dental practice and are seeking to gain knowledge of an evidence-based approach to aesthetic treatment. The programme director, Dr. Subir Banerji, has helped many dental graduates, both nationally and internationally, to achieve their postgraduate goals, broadening their horizons and delivery of dental care.

A team of highly experienced administrative and support staff provide dedicated support to students. Combined with the use of a comprehensive online educational delivery system, this allows students to continually interact with staff and colleagues, to further enhance their learning experience. Partial completion or early exit may result in the award of a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma.

- Intensive Face-to-Face Course

To supplement your online teaching you will also receive hands-on clinical training at our training centres in the UK. Designated tutors are present to offer expert guidance to students on complex dental procedures.

LonDEC, a King's College London Dental Institute postgraduate teaching centre, provides delegates with some of the finest hands-on dental teaching facilities available in the UK and Europe. The teaching sessions provide the supporting face-to-face tuition in clinical skills. Designated tutors are present to supply expert guidance to students on complex dental procedures.

- Course format and assessment

This master's programme is assessed through a combination of assignments, written examinations, clinical case presentations and a dissertation. In the first two years, most modules within the programme are assessed by a combination of 60 per cent written examination and 40 per cent written assignments.

For each module, you must complete a self-assessment exercise, a formative assignment and a final summative essay/assignment, to be entered into the end of year written examination. Exams can be taken in London or, for overseas students, at centres in the student's country of residence. If you fail an examination at the first sitting, you will be permitted one further attempt.

During years one and two, clinical work is also undertaken which is assessed by submission of clinical case presentations. In the final year, you will be allocated a supervisor and undertake a dissertation or project between January and September. The dissertation provides the mark for Year 3.

Career prospects

It is expected that graduates will continue in general practice offering a higher standard of clinical care with an increased confidence and ability. They might also use the programme to enter independent practice.

This exciting and innovative, part-time aesthetic medicine programme, presents the best available clinical evidence in non-surgical cosmetic interventions (NSCI), and combines it with clinical skills developed through experience and practice. This approach offers existing and aspiring aesthetic medicine practitioners an evidence-based programme of study in a growth specialism, that fully meets the qualification requirements recommended by Health Education England (Nov 2015).

One unique aspect of the UCLan aesthetic medicine programme is that not only do students learn about the latest research, products and technologies from leading clinicians, scientists and academics, but they also treat patients in a clinical facility, under the expert guidance and supervision of our clinical tutors. This unique evidence-based aesthetic medicine programme will prepare you to work safely and independently in an increasingly competitive sector, and one that will be more tightly regulated in the future.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

The three-year, part-time programme is delivered via blending learning, with a combination of face-to-face tutor led sessions, clinical hands-on sessions and self-directed learning, using the UCLan virtual learning platform (Blackboard).

You will be expected to attend up to 20 study/assessment days per academic year. Face-to-face and clinical sessions will be split between the excellent teaching facilities at the UCLan Preston Campus, and a CQC registered cosmetic aesthetic clinic (Discover Laser) in Burnley, Lancashire.

An emphasis on small-group teaching and training, gives you maximum contact with tutors and clinicians, with the benefit of academic support and clinical supervision at all stages of the programme.

The clinical hands-on sessions undertaken in the first and second year of study, prepare you to become a highly effective aesthetic medicine practitioner, and will develop the critical thinking skills required to undertake the third year dissertation.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Our UCLan healthcare professionals spend a significant part of their studies in the clinical setting, assessing patients in order to plan and deliver a range of safe and appropriate aesthetic medicine treatments. In a typical clinical session, students will inject botulinum toxins and dermal fillers, use laser and light based therapies, ‘recondition’ skin by chemical or physical rejuvenation. Advanced clinical sessions include interventions such as: thread lifts, carboxytherapy, platelet rich plasma, and skin resurfacing using laser and energy-based devices.

One element of the hands-on training that our UCLan students find critically important for their professional and personal development is the feedback and support provided by our clinical tutors. This evidence-based approach to aesthetic medicine builds the knowledge, confidence and competence we expect of our students.

Being an academic MSc programme, clinical knowledge and skills are developed and assessed throughout each year of study by a variety of formal examinations including; clinical OSCEs, case studies, oral presentations, reflective learning journals and portfolios.

An increasing number of healthcare professionals (HCPs) are now delivering aesthetic medicine interventions that treat a range of presenting conditions such as; photo damaged skin, vascular and pigmented lesions, lines and deep wrinkles, lax skin and facial volume loss.

Work in the early part of the course will comprise plenary lectures and practical sessions in our state-of-the-art phantom head facility working on simulated similar systems. As you move through the course you will progress to working on live patients under close supervision within UCLan Dental Clinic. Here skills will be developed and assessed through Direct Observations of Procedural Skills (DOPS). The academic underpinning that supports this discipline will be developed though plenary lectures, directed reading and case-based discussions, which you and others in the group will be expected to prepare and lead.
