Endodontology (Advanced Training) MClinDent
The Endodontology (Advanced Training) MClinDent is an intensive full-time programme designed to enable applicants from outside the European Union to acquire a competent level of clinical, academic and research expertise in Endodontics.
What will I learn?
The programme enables students to consolidate their knowledge and skills, through laboratory work and clinical components, including a restorative course with input from prosthodontic and periodontology departments. There are opportunities for 'hands-on' experience in the management of traumatic dento-alveolar injuries, patients with special needs, and chronic facial pain.
Why should I study this degree at UCL?
The Eastman is a major centre of excellence, at the forefront of evidence-based clinical service, research and development, and education in the oral health care sciences.
It is the largest academic postgraduate dental centre in Europe, and has a worldwide reputation for its clinically intensive postgraduate programmes.
Students on this programme benefit from a comprehensive curriculum, opportunities for self-directed learning, a clinically relevant laboratory techniques course, emphasis on integration of theoretical and clinical aspects, and prioritised reading recommendations allowing an individual approach to learning. The broad self-learning approach enables the pursuit of individual academic interests.
