Course content

Our PhD Clinical Dentistry programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Clinical Dentistry.

This is a 4-Year PhD programme that allows you to combine clinical experience in any one of a number of dental specialties with vigorous research training.

We are currently the only UK university to offer a formal four-year PhD, and it represents an exciting development in our postgraduate portfolio.

Currently offered in the clinical disciplines of endodontics, fixed and removable prosthodontics, periodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics, you can combine research with clinical experience during the entire tenure of your time in Manchester.

You will select a research project and supervisor in the normal manner and then indicate that you wish to undertake the four-year programme. A clinical supervisor will also be assigned to you appropriate to your chosen clinical specialty.
