Clinical and Diagnostic Oral Sciences

The courses aim to prepare you to be a safe practitioner, with the theoretical knowledge and expertise you need to confidently diagnose and manage the most challenging infections and oral manifestation of systemic diseases.

Taught by renowned international academics and experts in the field, you will learn how to effectively apply theory to practice in a safe learning environment. You will be exposed to an intensive mix of lectures, seminars and practical workshops (blended and full-time courses) using advanced clinical case scenarios, simulations, as well as contemporary ways of learning evidence-based medicine and problem solving. You will have the opportunity to discuss with peer students from other courses for a multidisciplinary approach and develop sound judgement based on evidence.

As part of this course, you will design and implement a research project that advances your understanding in the discipline. Our objective is to provide dental graduates with the core knowledge, clinical and academic skills essential for the delivery of safe evidence based approaches to solving clinical problems relevant to the practice of Oral Medicine, Clinical Oral Microbiology or Dental Infection Control.

Students registered in the distance learning or the blended courses can choose from three main pathways (Oral Medicine, Clinical Oral Microbiology, or Dental Infection Control).

Students enrolling in the combined Master of Science course for the three disciplines will develop clinical and academic knowledge and skills in Oral Medicine, Clinical Oral Microbiology and Dental Infection Control in a three year full time course. This is not a specialist training course but will further your knowledge and allow you to develop a clinical academic career in the subject.
