Overview

The program aims to develop the skills necessary for the non-surgical management of the full range of oral diseases as well as for the care of medically compromised patients in hospital and non-hospital settings. Diagnostic oral and general pathology are integral parts of the program.

The program is aimed at dental graduates preparing for a career in clinical oral medicine. Graduates will be prepared for specialist work within a large general hospital or in a private practice. The training in research will also provide a basis for an academic career, which would involve further research training through a Doctor of Philosophy. Additional training in diagnostic oral pathology would permit work within a diagnostic histo-pathology.

Course outcomes

The program develops skills in:

  • the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases of the oral mucosa and salivary glands
  • the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of facial pain
  • the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of the oral manifestations of systematic diseases such as HIV
  • providing oral health care needs of medically compromised patients, including transplant recipients.
