Course Description

The programme aims to produce graduates equipped with the academic knowledge and clinical skills required for specialist level clinical practice in Periodontology. The course aims to: - Provide the knowledge, skills and attitudes of the student fundamental to diagnosis and treatment of periodontics and related procedures. - Provide the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable critical evaluation and problem solving for periodontal problems to allow independent practise. - Provide the knowledge relating to the contemporary practise of periodontics (including an appreciation of an interdisciplinary approach to comprehensive patient care), to allow communication with both specialist and non-specialist audiences. - Produce students who are competent in the design and interpretation of original clinical research at the forefront of current dental research. - Provide students with the knowledge and experience to plan, implement and complete a research project showing initiative and personal responsibility. - Develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare for advanced clinical practise in periodontics - Provide the knowledge to have a comprehensive understanding of the complex issues involved in the scientific basis of periodontology. Module details: - Research Methods Component : The aim is to equip students with skills related to design, execution and interpretation of clinical and clinically-related research. - Biostatistics Component : The aim is to equip students with skills related to data collection, simple analysis and interpretation of clinical and clinically-related research. - Specialist Clinical Component - Dissertation The course is designed to prepare candidates to challenge the membership in restorative dentistry (periodontology) of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. We will request confirmation of eligibly from the College: this has been provided to our other three year courses. The programme employs a diverse range of teaching methods throughout the course units. They include seminars and lectures to introduce and facilitate more in depth understanding of key course concepts, and peer to peer and staff to student feedback and discussion through group work. Formal assessment for the Research Methods and Biostatistics components takes the form of two tutor-marked assignments per unit. Assessment of each course unit generally follows a standard plan, which involves mid or end of unit assignments (e.g. literature reviews) and end of semester examinations (for each unit completed during the semester) in the format of OSCEs and written examinations (including MCQs SBAs). This programme will have the majority of its clinical activity in the new Postgraduate Dental Education Centre (PGDeC), with clinical teaching being delivered by members of the University. Some sessions may take place at Manchester Dental Hospital. Students will also be exposed to industrial partners and experts from outside the University in the seminar series and also practical sessions. This will improve the quality of the course and will enhance the student experience further, providing access to world class clinical academics. Most graduates return to their practicesemployer, a smaller number go on to pursue further academic training and undertake higher research degrees (eg MPhil or PhD).
