MSc - Master of Science
Dentistry Child Dentistry Pediatrics
This flexible, three-year Master's programme blends online, distance learning with hands-on simulated clinical training and aims to support students' ongoing clinical work at the same time as developing their abilities. Year one provides students with the basic knowledge required in paediatric dentistry and teaches some of the clinical techniques needed in a laboratory setting. Year two encourages more advanced and complex treatment planning and looks at other aspects of good patient care such as clinical governance. Year three consolidates the learning to date and provides the theoretical experience required for graduates to understand, critically appraise and potentially carry out research. Part-time students are expected to attend the Eastman for week blocks for skills lab training (Two in year 1, and one in years 2 &3 respectively) and for exam days at the end of each year.
The first cohort of students on the Paediatric Dentistry MSc graduated in 2017, and graduands have successfully attained career posts, including Academic Training Fellow, Specialist Registrar Training Posts, Specilaty doctor and Senior Dental Officer posts.
As well as enhancing your clinical skills, this programme also supports the development of transferable skills such as the use of electronic resources, giving presentations and academic writing.
