This programme fulfils the need for dental practitioners to have access to a higher dental degree which provides specialist clinical training in Endodontics.
The Professional Doctorate is a research qualification that contains Professional Skills Training. Students who successfully complete the DDSc programme in Endodontics will be awarded the DDSc (Endodontics) from the University of Liverpool
and a MEndo from the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) of Edinburgh. Both Endodontics Specialist Curriculum and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh blueprints in Endodontics are embedded into the programme.
Honorary National Training Numbers leading to CCST may be available to suitable candidates with full GDC registration who satisfy the entry requirements to specialty clinical training in Endodontics as determined by the General Dental Council.
