This programme is designed for dentists who wish to advance their knowledge of this clinical specialty at a postgraduate level. There are three components: Research Methods and Biostatistics; Specialist Clinical Component; and a Research Component.
The aim of the Research Methods and Biostatistics components is to enable students to become competent in the design, data collection, and simple analysis and interpretation of clinical research projects.
The aim of the Specialist Clinical Component is to give students an understanding of the scientific basis of oral and maxillofacial surgery with particular emphasis on current theories relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of patients. The evidence base supporting clinical surgical practice is emphasised.
The Specialist Clinical Component permits observation of a wide range of surgery including facial trauma, implant and reconstructive, cancer and reconstructive, salivary gland and orthognathic surgery, as well as participation in dentoalveolar surgery.
The aim of the Research Component is to offer research training in identification, formulation and implementation of a specific research project. The research project is in line with the research themes of control of pain and anxiety or surgical implantology or oral cancer and health services research.
All applicants will be required to provide evidence of their primary dental qualification from a recognised institution. Evidence of citizenship of an EU country will be required for those claiming home student status.
