Oral Surgery (Advanced Training) MClinDent
The MClinDent Oral Surgery (Advanced Training) is a three calendar year full-time programme designed for applicants from outside the European Union needing a three year training programme to meet requirements in their home country.
What will I learn?
The programme combines taught courses with a research component. Students attend teaching clinics, ward rounds, lectures, seminars, and carry out a piece of study leading to a project dissertation. There are supervised clinical and laboratory craft courses and the opportunity to observe at in-patient operating sessions.
Why should I study this degree at UCL?
The Eastman is a 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 is a leading centre in the management of orofacial pain, cancer, and facial deformity. Out-patient and day case units are based at the Eastman, with in-patient operating at University College Hospital.
Students benefit from the broad programme structure that includes operating sessions, outpatient clinics, lectures, demonstrations and seminars, and the use of special investigative techniques to illustrate the diagnosis and management of orofacial surgical disease.
