The spectrum of disease relevant to the specialty of Oral Medicine is ever changing, particularly as a consequence of the increasing lifespan which inevitably leads to individuals being more at risk of acquired immunologically mediated and lifestyle-related disease as well as iatrogenic disorders due to drug therapy. Oral Medicine is thus more relevant than ever to ensure that patients from around the globe are appropriately managed to enhance their function and quality of life.

The programme provides postgraduates with didactic teaching by internationally recognised research driven clinical academics as well as the opportunity to be involved in the management of patients with possible the widest spectrum of disease relevant to Oral Medicine in Europe if not the globe. There is an emphasis upon putting theory into practice to ensure that postgraduates are well equipped to appropriately manage patients with common and sometimes rare or complex disease.


Oral Medicine MSc
