- This is the first year theory unit in Oral Medicine in the Doctor of Clinical Dentistry course. The unit is taken over two semesters and parts 1 and 2 must be completed to fulfill the requirements of the unit. Topics are covered via seminars and literature reviews, at a basic level during the early stages of the course and with increasing complexity throughout the course. The material covered depends on the needs of the individual student, the work previously performed in the course, the clinical needs of patients being treated by the student, and the relevance to current literature in oral medicine.
- Students are able to (1) evaluate, synthesise and apply the literature relevant to oral medicine; (2) demonstrate advanced problem solving and diagnostic skills; (3) demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of oral medicine through discussion, interpretation and evaluation in written and oral presentations; (4) interpret original research; (5) define and demonstrate the responsibility of being a practitioner in oral medicine; (6) provide clinical leadership; and (7) use effective communication skills with colleagues, patients and the broader community.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) presentations (continuous assessment); (2) clinical examination with viva voce; and (3) written examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
