Our Maxillofacial Prosthetic Rehabilitation MSc has been designed for maxillofacial prosthetists, technologists and prosthodontists to learn to use cutting-edge digital technology for intra and extra-oral prosthetic facial rehabilitation in clinical practice. Delivered primarily online, the course will enable you to develop your technical skills and develop higher standards of clinical practice. The content is prepared by world-leading experts, augmented with face-to-face training, and enables you to enhance your knowledge of prosthetic facial rehabilitation and improve your clinical and technical skills while continuing to practice.

Key benefits

  • Internationally renowned centre of excellence for teaching and research.
  • Pioneers of distance learning in dentistry with over 20 years' experience.
  • Intensive face-to-face training blocks, teaching theory and best clinical practice.
  • Teaching team of world experts led by Professor Trevor Coward.

This course will allow you to develop and demonstrate your extended knowledge, understanding and advanced skills in the treatment of patients who require prosthetic facial rehabilitation. You will study and practice a broad range of treatments for the replacement of missing hard and soft tissues, using both traditional and advanced digital technologies. The course includes: - Advanced prosthodontics, implantology, ocular prosthetics, fixed and removable prosthodontics, treatment planning and prosthesis design. - Digital technology, colour science, medical emergencies, cross infection control and care of medically/clinically compromised patients. - Biomaterials science, craniofacial implants, silicone elastomers and gels, tissue engineering and bone substitutes, biocompatibility. - Psychology of managing terminally ill patients, counselling skills and forming integrated care plans, or intra oral implantology, and advanced fixed and removable prosthodontics. *Intensive face-to-face training blocks* Delivered primarily online, the course also provides 20 days of intensive teaching and practical training at Rangoonwala College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Pune, India. Under expert supervision, these blocks are an invaluable way to consolidate learning and progress to the final year. The face-to-face component takes place for nine consecutive days in Year 1 and 11 consecutive days in Year 2 at Rangoonwala College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Pune, India.

Notes to applicants

The provision of any clinical opinions, treatment planning, treatment plans and/or any advice in relation to care of individual patients will not be provided by the teachers and staff of the course. Patient treatment and care is the sole responsibility of the treating clinician. Advice regarding the suitability of a clinical case for submission for the clinical module can be given at the tutor’s discretion.

Assessment

    Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include written assignments and clinical case reports.
