Course Objectives

At the end of a six year program, Dental Medicine graduates possess the technical skills and knowledge required to operate as professional figures in the field of public and private dentistry.

Graduates will also have developed the learning skills needed to pursue specialist degrees. Students are trained in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment, either surgical or medical, of acquired conditions and congenital disorders of the teeth, mouth, jaw bones, temporo-mandibular joints and related tissues, as well as in dental rehabilitation.   The first part of the program lasts two years and provides basic training geared at introducing students to the fundamentals of the structural organisation and vital functions of the human body. In addition the doctor-patient relationship and the key principles of scientific methodology are part of the academic program.

The subsequent three-year course is dedicated to the study of medical, surgical and specialist disciplines, with particular reference to the clinical problems associated with odontostomatological pathologies. The sixth year is primarily dedicated to clinical activities.

Career and Employment

Dental Medicine graduates can pursue careers in the field of professional dentistry. They can also undertake first and second level managerial roles within the National Health Service, in accordance with current legislation.
