¿Qué aprenderé?

The Department of Dentistry offers the degree of PhD in Medical Sciences - Periodontology. It is a full-time research training program with clinical training integrated into it.

Program Requirements

Students are required to complete a minimum of ?73.5 in required coursework. The program also consists of a clinical component, seminars, and a thesis. Student progress will be monitored through an annual written and/or oral internal or external assessment.

The assessment will permit the development of specific clinical and/or didactic improvement objectives before the next annual assessment.

The clinical requirements involve successful completion of a selected number of teaching cases. Clinical training will not start until defined research milestones are attained and the candidacy examination is successfully passed. Clinical training will start in September immediately after these conditions are met.

The program of study is determined in consultation with the supervisor and supervisory committee. The research component will be exclusively performed during the first two years.

Students enrolled in the PhD in Medical Sciences - Periodontology will not have the option of transferring to the MSc in Medical Sciences - Periodontology program but may switch to the MSc in Medical Sciences - Dentistry or MSc in Medical Sciences - Oral Biology.
