Dental Implant Courses

David Madruga Reviewed by Dr Roberto D'Ambrogio (Italy) on Qoute I enjoyed every part of the course organized at the URJC University last November. The organization of the lessons, the program and the arguments developed, followed every time a rational pathway; the amount of information given to the students was consistent but always summarized at the end so to make the comprehension easier, the more important concepts were repeated in the different days of the course, from the different speakers, every time testing our comprehension and memorization of them.

The overall organization of the course was definitely good, the speakers all interesting, the transfers well organized, and David was always present and ready to solve quickly the little problems or the particular needs of every student of the program.

Highly appreciated, highly recommended. Qoute

David Madruga Reviewed by Dr Zaid Alabdi (UK) on Qoute I have been more than impressed with the organisation and the contents we have received before, during and beyond the week we spent in Madrid at the University, everyone was friendly and willing to help with a smile.

The support I am having from my supervisor and David was brilliant and continuous, they are always there when needed, can't recommend this MSc programme more Qoute

David Madruga Reviewed by Dr Morten Vind (Denmark) on Qoute I can recommend the course to all my colleagues. It was a good experience being on the Universidad in Madrid for one week. I think all the teachers did very good lectures and I hope I will be able to attend other courses in the future. Qoute

David Madruga Reviewed by Dr Ignacio Farga (UK) on Qoute The European MSc in Implant Dentistry is an excellent short course not only to broaden your knowledge in Implantology but also to develop good strategies to critically appraise the available literature in the field and to discern what is evidence based dentistry and what it is not. I am very pleased to have attended to this well conducted MSc and I am looking forward to meeting my colleagues again. Qoute

Experts in the field of medical research will guide candidates towards the completion of their research project.

The MSc in Implant Dentistry via distance learning offers students the opportunity to further develop their academic career and subsequently move into the field of research, academia and/or teaching if desired.

Course components

The program has been specifically designed to facilitate core knowledge and learning skills without the need to attend to several units throughout a year.

The program is structured in two main components:

1. Contact learning:

A series of lectures, tutorials and hands on exercises will take place during an intensive 5-day unit at the University.

All delegates will be taught in research methodology and ethics, philosophy of research, statistical analysis, data presentation and scientific writing.

Participants will be guided towards the completion of an original piece of research. Assigned tutors from the University will provide online support and mentoring in a one-to-one basis for the duration of the course.

After completion of the research dissertation, all candidates will be invited to present their thesis on a viva examination (usually 12 months after the program start).

External examiners from FGDP will be invited to ensure quality assurance during the assessment process.
