MSc Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (Clin)


Course Description

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of diseases, injuries and defects affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck. All programmes are based on the speciality of oral surgery but within the wider context of maxillofacial surgery. The three-year programme provides specialist oral surgery clinical training.

Students undertake minor oral surgery under supervision, carried out under local anaesthesia, conscious sedation and general anaesthesia. They also attend theatre to assist and observe major surgery. Students attend consultation clinics, trauma clinics, ward rounds and carry out ward duties.

The clinical component consists of the following modules:
- Surgical Basic Sciences (Basic surgical science, preoperative and postoperative care) and Patient Care (Assessing patients, medical aspects of patient care and control of pain and anxiety)
- Reflective Oral Surgery Practices
- Dental Tissues (Infections and inflammation of the teeth and jaws, removal of teeth and surgical implantology)
- Bone: Disease and Injury (Diseases of bone and the maxillary sinus, oral and maxillofacial injuries)
- Soft Tissues (Cysts, mucosal disease, premalignancy and malignancy)
- Salivary Tissue, Pain and TMJ (Salivary gland disease, facial pain and disorders of the temporomandibular joint)

Students attend weekly interactive seminars lead by school senior staff and some invited guest speakers. Some of these have actor patients present to allow students to rehearse their clinical skills.

Three-year programme students also attend external teaching events such as residential blocks for basic science applied to surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
