FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • The programme is made up of six modules, two each at levels S (straightforward), A (advanced) and C (complex). Participants complete two modules per year.
  • Each of the modules includes a three-day on-site training element and combines hands-on elements, lectures, practicals and live surgery, hosted at some of Europe’s most prestigious universities.
  • The breadth of the training modules is much wider than what is offered by existing courses and enables candidates to gain the range of knowledge required to practise at the highest level
  • The programme covers domains including surgery,prosthodontics, periodontics, treatment planning and maintenance in every module
  • On successfully completing the programme, you will be awarded the EAO Master Diploma in Implant Dentistry.

RECEIVE DIRECT FEEDBACK
FROM YOUR MENTOR

Each EAO Master Diploma in Implant Dentistry participant is mentored by an expert clinician in regular group sessions. Each mentor tutors a small group of students. Mentoring sessions take place online, enabling participants in different locations to all take part simultaneously.

Group sessions are recommended as you are likely to have challen-ges and questions in common with your peers. Mentoring sessions are structured around clinical cases that you are expected to per-form between each module and document so that it can be shared online with mentors. Discussion and feedback forms a key ele-ment of the interactive learning experience. Each student will have the opportunity to participate in at least three mentoring sessions per modul.

Group sessions last for approx 90 min, allowing each participant to present his/her case. In total, each group of participants will receive approximately eight hours of mentoring.

Assistant Professor Göran Urde lectured on three topics over the course of a three-day LLE in Malmö. Professor Urde also acted as a mentor to several participants from the 2016 intake. He praised the high-calibre of the participants:

The groups engaged in some fantastic discussions, and we were able to tailor
the content of our presentations to
include additional information.“

Assistant Professor Göran
Urde, Malmö University

A TAILOR MADE LEARNING
platform at your fingertips

The EAO Classroom – the programme’s eLearning platform – contains all the content required for the course. This includes preparation materials for each module and debriefing materials for use after the LLE for each module. The eLearning resources in-clude a series of videos relating to completed case plans. You will also be able to view lecture materials and videos of clinical proce-dures, as well as accessing selected scientific literature.
At the end of both the preparation period and the debriefing period, an online assessment must be undertaken.

The pass mark is 60% of questions answered correctly.
A failed assessment can be repeated after a period of 24 hours.

  • benefit from small-group tuition
  • experience a unique learning and sharing environment
  • increase your knowledge and capabilities
  • receive feedback from mentors on your cases
  • learn alongside your colleagues and peers

My favourite part of the course has been the live surgery sessions, where I get the opportunity to watch and even assist some of the best clinicians in the field.”
