Endodontics

About the programme

This programme is a full-time, two-year international Master's programme with clinical training. The programme is offered to certified dentists with a minimum of two years clinical experience after graduation who seek to obtain research experience and improve their theoretical knowledge and clinical skills in Endodontics.

This program is also suited for students who are planning a career in academia. Upon highly commended completion of the 2-year programme, a 4-year Odont Dr programme (PhD, 3rd cycle) is available to a limited number of international students after application to the Faculty Board of Research and Research Programmes.

Objectives

Upon successful completion of the international Master's programme in Endodontics, which includes a research project and the defence of a thesis (2nd cycle), participants will be awarded a Master's Degree in Dental Science (MDSc). Clinically, students will develop clinical competence and theoretical knowledge to be able to assess, diagnose and treat patients with moderately complex need for endodontic treatment.

Course components

After introductory courses in comprehensive dentistry and research methodology, an individual research project is the basis for the Master's thesis.  Focused theoretical and clinical training in Endodontics is obtained through a combination of seminars, lectures, individual assignments, and preclinical/clinical sessions.

The research project is an independent work by the student, supervised by a senior researcher in the field.

The department has a problem-based approach to learning, and encourages self-directed study of endodontic principles in theory and practice. Students are exposed to clinical cases with varying complexity. Collaboration with residents in the national dental specialisation programme is encouraged, and joint seminars with postgraduate students and specialists from other relevant subareas are often offered. Students are exposed, in the form of auscultation, to a large number of endodontic procedures of variable complexity, ant treat own selected patients under the close guidance and supervision of experienced endodontic specialists and academic staff.
