Programme Content

The programme will be taught part-time by distance learning over a period of normally 3 to 5 years, or one year full time in house. It is comprised of five compulsory 30-credit taught modules and one 60 credit research project module.

Module 1 - Mechanics
Module 2 - Biomechanics
Module 3 - Rehabilitation Technology
Module 4 - Orthopaedic Technology
Module 5 - Statistics

Methods of Teaching and Assessment

Modules 1-5:
Teaching in modules 1-5 will be delivered through distance learning module components, each comprised of a module component guide and several component units. Tutor support will be available via email, web conferencing, written correspondence and telephone.

Assessment of modules 1-5 will be by examination with the option of sitting exams upon completion of each individual module or upon completion of all five modules. Assessment is weighted (80%) by exam and (20%) by coursework.

Successful completion of the PGDip modules 1-5 is required to progress to the research project component. Successful completion of course work will normally be required prior to sitting the examination papers. Each of the two components of assessment for the PGCert and PGDip (course work and examination) must have a minimum grade of D3 to pass and progress to the full MSc programme.

Module 6 - Research Project:
During the research project, learning will be partly experiential, partly directed and partly self-directed. The research project will be assessed through the presentation of a thesis, and the final mark will be moderated through an oral exam (60 credits).

In common with all specialty training programmes in the UK, this course runs for three years and incorporates a Masters degree. The full course combines the taught elements and research for the MSc with a mandatory clinical training module. Read more
In common with all specialty training programmes in the UK, this course runs for three years and incorporates a Masters degree. The full course combines the taught elements and research for the MSc with a mandatory clinical training module.

We place special emphasis on:
-Contemporary orthodontic treatment techniques
-Research methods and biostatistics
-The development of a questioning approach to the speciality of orthodontics

The taught elements are delivered in small group sessions, seminars, practical skills training, online learning and student-led enhancement sessions. Clinical teaching involves close supervision of a personal cohort of patients with severe malocclusions led by orthodontic specialists and hospital consultants.

The clinical training part of the course involves attendance at clinics in the University and associated Hospital Trusts. During this time you will provide treatment for approximately 150 carefully selected patients under direct supervision of Consultant Orthodontists.
The research methods and biostatistics training is used in the planning and implementation of a research project and its presentation as a dissertation; advice and guidance will be available from a group of highly experienced researchers. It is hoped that the research topic will examine an issue of relevance to your future work and will also provide the basis for a refereed publication.

Aims

The aim of the taught clinical component is to give you an understanding of the scientific basis of orthodontics. There is a particular emphasis on current thinking relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of patients.

Teaching and learning

Teaching in orthodontics will be provided throughout the course. This element will include tutorials, seminars and clinical demonstrations. You are encouraged to attend other relevant seminars in other clinical disciplines to gain a broad perspective of orthodontics.

Instruction will also be given in clinical and laboratory aspects of orthodontics. These will take the form of demonstrations, seminars and practical laboratory exercises.

Career opportunities

Orthodontics is a fascinating, stimulating specialty that offers a number of career opportunities. Orthodontists enjoy their clinical work and this can be undertaken in a specialist practice setting funded either through a state run scheme, eg. National Health Service (NHS), or in a private setting where treatment is funded directly by the patients.

Some countries adopt a third party payment system where all or part of the treatment cost is met by an insurance scheme.
In addition to their clinical role, many orthodontists also have an interest in teaching and research. These teaching roles can be part time in combination with clinical work or full time. In the research field, orthodontists have followed their specialist training with PhD study, and there are many examples of excellent orthodontic research teams in universities all over the world.

In the UK, consultant orthodontists play an active role in teaching and research, concentrate their clinical activity in multidisciplinary cases of high complexity and have an important role in management of the maxillofacial units in which they work.
