The course shall be held in Malta over two weekends. Since it is theoretically based, sessions will be in classroom and small-group format, with a mix of inductive and deductive approaches. The former presents specific case-studies and research results leading to the understanding of more general principles of basic surgical science for implantology. The latter starts from such general principles and applies them to specific case studies and dental practice situations.
The learning dynamics is a strongly dialogical one since the tutors and participants are all professional peers with a range of experience and expertise that will be tapped during discussions.
At the end of the course the learner will have acquired the responsibility and autonomy to:
address common clinical problems in oral surgery, including complications and emergencies
apply clinical protocols in oral surgery
apply the correct approach in surturing and flapless surgery
Qualified and practicing general dental practitioners requiring modularised CPD leading to internationally oriented postgraduate training in implantology
