Oral Pathology Level 2B - DENT5222

Further understanding of Oral Pathology is built on the foundations previously established in anatomical pathology as it relates to Oral Medicine. In particular, further experience and understanding is developed in the histopathology, cytopathology and immunopathology of oral conditions encountered in Oral Medicine practice. In most weeks, there is histopathology departmental review of current clinical cases, particularly biopsies of patients undertaken or seen in the Oral Medicine clinics, and or Head and Neck oncology clinics.
