This course establishes the foundation for experienced dentists to develop their knowledge and clinical skills in endodontics, the branch of dentistry that deals with prevention of pathology and treatment of the dental pulp and surrounding tissues. In addition, a custom designed communication course introduces students to Health Services Culture and Governance.

You will be given the unique opportunity to:
-Develop your skills and interests in this subject by interacting with national and international experts
-Observe endodontics carried out to standards of excellence
-Promote your personal development and management skills, enabling you to work independently as a proficient clinician with enhanced leadership skills at the end of the course

Treatment of complex endodontic cases, which may be integral to more comprehensive restorative treatment plans, will involve working with consultants/specialists in other disciplines, which will facilitate eligibility to sit Membership in Endodontics, RCS Edinburgh.

You will also have the opportunity to interact with, and be taught by, national and international experts in their field, and attend recognised national courses.

Aims

The aims of the four course units are:
-Research Methods Component (15 credits): The aim is to equip you with skills in the design, execution and interpretation of clinical and clinically-related research.
-Biostatistics Component (15 credits): This unit will provide you with skills in data collection, simple analysis and interpretation of clinical and clinically-related research.
-Specialist Clinical Component (90 credits): This unit will give you an understanding of the scientific basis of endodontics, with particular emphasis on current theories relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of adult patients. You will explore related specialist areas such as the interfaces between endodontics and orthodontics, implants and periodontics, treatment of the younger patient, treatment of the older patients, comprehensive patient care, the worn dentition, microbial implications in endodontics, etc.
-Dissertation (60 credits): You will train in the identification, formulation and implementation of a specific research project (dissertation) and gain experience of working independently. You will be encouraged to undertake an evidence based approach to your project.

Teaching and learning

You will be encouraged to attend specialist society meetings and to present your research findings and clinical work.

Teaching and learning methods are designed to encourage you to take responsibility for your own learning and to integrate work with formal educational activities.

The course usually consists of five clinical sessions a week with a mix of treatment and observation.

Coursework and assessment

Research Methods: Formal assessment takes the form of two tutor-marked assignments and participation in specified online group activities.

Biostatistics: Formal assessment takes the form of two tutor-marked assignments.

Clinical: The clinical unit is assessed by a written assignment, submission of clinical cases, a written examination and a structured oral examination.

Dissertation, Year 3 (10,000-15,000 words).

Career opportunities

Motivated individuals can develop careers in a range of areas including clinical practice, teaching and research, and prepares candidates for working at specialist level.

Accrediting organisations

Completion of this course confers eligibility for candidates to sit M Endo, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh

The own-group biases are indicated by superior recognition for faces of one’s own group relative to another group. These groups include ethnicity (Meissner & Brigham, 2001), gender (Wright & Sladden, 2001), age (Anastasi & Rhodes, 2007), and even university (Hugenberg, Millar, & Claypool, 2008). Read more
The own-group biases are indicated by superior recognition for faces of one’s own group relative to another group. These groups include ethnicity (Meissner & Brigham, 2001), gender (Wright & Sladden, 2001), age (Anastasi & Rhodes, 2007), and even university (Hugenberg, Millar, & Claypool, 2008). There are two broad theories explaining these biases: socio-cognitive motivational theories (Sporer, 2001) and perceptual theories (Valentine & Endo, 2002). Eye-tracking has been used to find evidence for both theories but using different groups thereby making any general conclusions about the own-group biases impossible. Evidence suggests that ethnicity determines how faces are viewed (Caldara et al., 2010; Hills, Cooper, & Pake, 2013). However, Hills & Willis (2016) and Man & Hills (in press) have found that people view own- and other-age and gender faces differently. This, therefore, suggests that these biases may be based on different mechanisms.

The proposed study will employ eye-tracking to explore four own-group biases described above using within-participant designs in order to rule out confounding variables and participant effects. Participants view 40 faces (half inverted to measure the face-inversion effect, Yin, 1969) and after a delay view 80 faces (half new) in a standard old/new recognition paradigm, repeated for each type of face.
