Months of entry
This postgraduate diploma programme is designed for dentists wishing to enhance their endodontic knowledge and clinical skills whilst continuing to work in practice, and is sustained part-time over two years.
The first year of the programme is delivered in a state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratory under the direct coaching and mentoring of experienced teaching staff. This year lays the foundation of knowledge and integrates it with technical skill development. Clinical mentoring is provided on endodontic cases being treated in your own practice. The second year includes 18 days of directly supervised clinical work on patients at the institute with a staff:student ratio of 1:4, allowing maximum opportunity for clinical application of knowledge and technical skills developed in the first year. A clinical log-book is maintained throughout with reflections to ensure development.
