Master (MSc) in Endodontics
The MSc programme in Endodontology is run as a collaborative partnership with the University of Chester. Dentists have the option of exiting with a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma. The aims of the course is to enable registered dental practitioners to develop their skills in assessment and diagnosis of endodontic disease, to critically appraise the treatment options for patients and successfully carry out the required service. The programme consists of six blocks of knowledge, each of 20 credits at Master’s level, and a 60-credit Dissertation. During 3 years dentists will be taught using both interactive seminar discussions in small groups and extensively via ‘hands-on’ sessions, undertake seven to ten hours of private study per week.
Undergraduate endodontic training is taught at a basic level with little training on contemporary techniques. Increasingly, many dentists are very enthusiastic to increase both their understanding of the disease process and their competency in providing endodontic care to their patients. Their MSc Endodontology course is designed to offer a unique endodontic training opportunity to have a thorough understanding of the disease process and to practise contemporary treatment techniques. Practice takes place in skills laboratories, with simulation sessions using endodontic equipment.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Endodontology modules further develop your endodontic skills, specifically those requiring the use of the dental operating microscope and knowledge of the biology of the endodontic disease process, including examination of the evidence base for practice.
Among the entry requirements is that dentists must be registered with the General Dental Council (or equivalent in your own country). If your first language is not English, then you must have a diploma certifying the English level proficiency.
