Requiring a minimum commitment of one day a week for three calendar years, inclusive of attendance one day every fortnight, it is ideally suited for the busy dental practitioner keen on acquiring a postgraduate qualification in endodontics whilst continuing to work in practice.

The programme provides an in-depth approach for exploring current concepts in clinical endodontics, offering deeper knowledge and understanding of the subject, improving clinical skills and increasing job satisfaction. There will be opportunities to access current endodontic concepts and research, exchange ideas and experience with other postgraduate students.
