Masters degree in advanced general dental practice

Interesting and exciting news for General Dentists!

The Dublin Dental University Hospital with the support of the IFPDC is offering a part-time/blended learning Masters Degree in General Dental Practice – Clinical Dentistry (M.Sc.). The Masters degree course commenced in the autumn of 2017 and the second intake is scheduled for September 2018. This Masters qualification will be awarded by TCD.

In the first instance dentists who already hold the Dip Clin Dent qualification can upgrade to Masters level by completing three blended learning modules over one year – Prosthodontics, Paediatric Dentistry and a Research Thesis. The Programme fees are EU €5,041, non-Eu €10,078.
This facility may also be offered to dentists with other similar postgraduate qualifications (Ireland and UK).

Consideration may be given to dentists who don’t meet the above criteria to submit an expression of interest to complete the part-time Masters Programme over a three year period.

Applications must be submitted by 31st July 2018
