This course is designed for dentists who wish to advance their knowledge of this clinical specialty at a postgraduate level.
There are four separate units: Research Methods (15 credits); Biostatistics (15 credits); Specialist Clinical Component (90 credits); and, for MSc students, a dissertation (60 credits).
In the cases of the Research Methods and Biostatistics units, the aim is to enable you 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 you 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 dissertation (for MSc students only) 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.
