Why Dental Public Health at Dundee?

This course is unique to Scotland and is a joint venture between the Dental Health Services Research Unit (DHSRU) and the School of Dentistry.

Both DSHRU and the School of Dentistry are world renowned and have formal links with the World Health Organisation (WHO). DHSRU has made long term contributions to oral epidemiology and public health, caries diagnosis and management and, in particular, to practice-based dental research and evidence based dentistry. DHSRU remains unique in dentistry, in the UK and internationally, by maintaining a long term portfolio of projects focusing on matters of importance to health services and providers of routine dental care.

Using the World Health Organization (WHO) Oral Health Programme strapline 'think global act local', the course will provide you with the necessary Dental Public Health knowledge, understanding and skills to develop a country specific oral health strategy to promote oral health and reduce oral health inequality.

This programme also focuses on evidence-based dentistry and has input from Derek Richards, Director for the Centre of Evidence-Based Dentistry and Professor Jan Clarkson, Co-ordinating Editor of the Cochrane Oral Health Group.

This modular multidisciplinary programme in public health is designed to provide academic training to professionals currently working in, or who wish to work in, the public health field.

As well as practising clinicians, the course may be of considerable value for those involved (or thinking about becoming involved) in senior management in health services, as it covers most aspects of population health including epidemiology, statistics, health economics and health service management. Its modular nature allows the flexibility for participants to shape the programme to fit their needs in a way that ensures maximum utility with minimum disruption. Moreover, the course is delivered in an environment that combines the pragmatism and ‘can do’ spirit of a modern dynamic health service with the rigour, discipline, and high standards of a premier Russell Group University. The course covers many of the areas necessary for sitting the Part A examination of the Faculty of Public Health.

The MPH programme can be studied either full-time, part-time or over up to five years by flexible learning. Overseas students may only study the MPH full-time. Teaching takes place in one-week blocks.
