Course detail

Description

The main themes which you will study are:

  1. The scientific basis of endodontology.
  2. Diagnosis and treatment planning for patients with advanced endodontic problems and clinical treatment of patients with endodontic and other restorative problems.
  3. Research methodology to enable you to undertake a research project.

You will interact productively with fellow graduate students who are specialising in prosthodontics and periodontology.

The course is designed for qualified dentists wanting to extend their knowledge and clinical practice in endodontology. The course has formal recognition for UK specialist training.

We provide extensive contemporary knowledge in endodontology, enabling students to attain clinical proficiency in endodontics to recognised specialist level, to relate endodontic care to other aspects of restorative dentistry, and to learn research methodology.

You will achieve clinical proficiency in endodontics to a recognised UK specialist level and have the opportunity to sit for the membership examination with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

This course is available to study full-time over three years or over four years. The course content is identical across both periods.

Candidates should apply for either the four-year (3 days per week) programme or the three-year (5 days per week) programme. Both lengths are classified as full-time programmes. 

Course purpose

The course is designed for qualified dentists wanting to extend their knowledge and clinical practice in endodontology. The course has formal recognition for UK specialist training. We provide extensive contemporary knowledge in endodontology, enabling students to attain clinical proficiency in endodontics to recognised specialist level, to relate endodontic care to other aspects of restorative dentistry, and to learn research methodology.

 

Course format and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

Teaching

The usual training period will be a minimum of 4,500 hours across the degree.

The course content is apportioned approximately as:

  1. 60% clinical
  2. 25% academic
  3. 15% research

This time allocation is flexible and will depend upon the capacity of the trainees to complete the curriculum to a competent level.

Standard university term times do not apply to this course. You will receive a leave allowance for each academic year with full details provided on enrolment.

This course is primarily taught at King’s College London Guy’s Campus and King’s College London Denmark Hill Campus.

Assessment

Your three academic taught modules will be assessed by written exams. Your five clinical modules will be examined on cases and open problems with oral exams, and you will have one research module, for which you will submit a report, with an oral exam.

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.

Extra information

Entry to the programme is strictly dependent upon occupational health clearance that you are able to conduct exposure prone procedures (EPPs) before you start clinical work. This will assess your hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis C antibody status, HIV and TB status following the completion of a health questionnaire and a further health check before or at enrolment. If offered a place on the course, overseas students are advised to be tested locally and send the results of these checks with the questionnaire, prior to a separate full test in the UK at the College's Occupational Health Department before the term begins. All offers of a place on a programme are made subject to a satisfactory criminal conviction disclosure. If you are from overseas or have never lived in the UK before, you should contact the relevant authorities in your home country to arrange for the equivalent check to be conducted and/or a certificate of good conduct to be issued.
