This programme is designed for dental graduates who wish to pursue a career in Prosthodontics. The programme can contribute the first two years of clinical training leading to Membership in Restorative Dentistry of The Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh following successful completion of an optional third year of training which is available through competitive entry. For UK / EEC applicants wishing to be entered on the GDC specialist list this option must be agreed by The London Deanery prior to entry.
The programme comprises extensive clinical training (60 per cent), formal teaching (25 per cent), and a supervised research project (15 per cent). All the taught and clinical modules on the programme are core options. You will have considerable choice when selecting a topic for your research project.
The programme includes modules covering all aspects of fixed prosthodontics, removable prosthodontics, implantology and related subjects.
You will value the opportunity of attending new patient diagnostic clinics, providing you with the opportunity of formulating complex treatment plans.
Assessment You will currently be assessed at the end of year one by a single written examination paper and a clinical oral examination. At the end of the second year there are two written papers, two case presentations (four for the MRD candidates), a treatment planning exercise, and a clinical test in both fixed and removable prosthodontics. You will also take part in an oral examination of your research report.
At the moment all three major components of the second year exams (written, clinical, research) are equally weighted.
