The programme has three major teaching strands. These include seminars and practical classes, supervised clinical and laboratory practice where treatment planning, clinical procedures and technical work are performed for selected cases, and finally a research investigation, which will lead to your dissertation.
This programme has been designed to help you specialise in prosthodontics.
