Course Structure, incl. Curriculum

The Master of Dental Medicine program consists of three years of study and is based on their sequencing. The modules and skills lines of study years 1-2 must be completed in the designated order. The third year of study focuses on practical training. It includes Clinical Training, in which the diagnostic and therapeutic skills learned up to that point are expanded and practiced in the SFU Dental Clinic/Outpatient Clinic for Dentistry and in external placements.

Students are directly involved in teaching and introduced to patient contact as part of their training at the dental clinic from the first semester of the master’s program. At this point, students take on direct responsibility according to their competencies and play a decisive role in shaping the teaching and learning process, depending on their commitment. The program is structured in such a way that students complete their master’s thesis after the fourth semester in order to be able to concentrate fully on practical work with patients in the clinical training in the third year of study and to be able to complete the program in the standard period of study.
