This programme aims to develop the cognitive, psychomotor and interpersonal skills required to enable independent practice of endodontics. It is studied either full-time over two years or part-time over four years and has a strong clinical bias.

About this degree

The programme teaches a broad and deep understanding of endodontology, enabling students to apply appropriate clinical strategies from first principles. Mentored coaching specifically targets development of independent learning skills, with the aim of achieving long-term mastery.

Students undertake modules to the value of 360 credits. Year one consists of core modules (135 credits) and a dissertation (30 credits). Year two consists of core modules (135 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits). Year three modules (Speciality/Advanced Training only) are non-credit bearing.

Applications

Nb. Until recently, in addition to submitting an application to UCL Eastman, applicants for the Specialty Training programmes in Endodontology, Periodontology and Prosthodontics also used to have to make a separate and parallel application to Health Education England (HEE). For these programmes, this is no longer the case.

Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines.

There is an application processing fee for Eastman Dental Institute programmes of £110 for online applications and £135 for paper applications. Further information can be found at: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught/application.

Who can apply?

The programme is suitable for qualified dental surgeons who wish to develop an advanced level of academic knowledge in endodontology and a high level of clinical competence in the practice of endodontics. The supervised research project provides a baseline experience for further work in these fields.
