Postgraduate dental education from King’s College London – now establishing Dubai cohort

Post a comment by King's College London

Ranked 1st in Europe and 4th globally for dentistry (QS World University rankings 2017), the Dental Institute at King’s offers high-intensity postgraduate education, to bring students to the forefront of their field, whether undertaking specialist training or enhancing skills via blended learning.

With the largest range of postgraduate dentistry programmes in Europe, students benefit from a breadth of expertise, skills and personalities of staff and peers from all over the world.

In addition to on-campus study, King’s delivers dental education and training to students from over 50 countries via six distance learning master’s programmes. Designed to meet the professional development needs of practitioners, all include face-to-face training blocks for hands-on experience in a traditional teaching environment and interaction with peers and expert teachers.

One of these, the popular Fixed & Removable Prosthodontics MClinDent programme, ran a pilot face-to-face training block for the first time in Dubai in February 2017 at the state-of-the-art 3M Innovation Center, led by Professor Brian Millar. Students from around the region took the opportunity to learn and practice contemporary clinical techniques at the world-class facility and will be returning for their second year in February 2018. Building on the success of this pilot, applications are now being accepted for a new cohort for 2018 entry who will also be able to choose Dubai as their preferred location for face-to-face training.

Dr Fariha Hussain explained ‘In response to the international mix of our students and growing demand, we identified Dubai as an important centre to hold our training, giving students more convenience and flexibility.’

Another blended learning programme, the consistently popular Aesthetic Dentistry MSc, is continuing to run its face-to-face training in London. Programme directors, Dr Subir Banerji and Dr Shamir Mehta have just released a new book: Practical Procedures in Aesthetic Dentistry (Wiley-Blackwell ISBN: 978-1-119-03298-4) which presents a collection of videos demonstrating clinical techniques in aesthetic and restorative dentistry, accompanied by a handbook summarising the key points of each procedure.
