This new course, and the first dental postgraduate program at BSMS, draws upon the experience of senior and established dental implant surgeons and restorative specialists in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
The course adopts an individualised approach in surgical training, with mentoring, utilising work-based assessments (WBAs) and direct observed procedural skills (DOPS) so that delegates will be able to rapidly progress to more advanced techniques after successfully completing their competency-based assessments.
The main emphasis on assignments will be on clinical case presentations and short essays. Students who do not have access to their own patients will be invited to observe clinical sessions and all modules will have live surgery components, with hands on experience in simulation settings and cadaveric training.
The course will be delivered over 1-2 days per month.
The Postgraduate Diploma will be the primary learning goal, with the option to leave with a Postgraduate Certificate after the first year.
