Education programme

Education Programme information

The EAO has a long-standing commitment to dental education. After lauching the Certification Programme in 2010, the EAO launched its Postgraduate Diploma in Implant Dentistry in June 2016. It complements the EAO Certification Programme and provides an additional service to EAO members and the wider dental community. It has been carefully designed to offer unique benefits that are not currently provided by other programmes.

The programme is made up of six modules to be completed over a three-year period, two each at case difficulties levels S (straightforward), A (advanced) and C (complex). Each of the modules includes a three-day live learning event (LLE) at one of Europe's most prestigious universities (Malmö, Groningen, Düsseldorf, Zürich, Madrid, Lisbon). Each LLE combines hands-on elements, lectures, seminars, practicals and live surgery. The LLEs will be complemented by expert mentoring, and participants will also benefit from a unique online learning platform.

Further details about the programme and its structure is available on the introductory brochure.
