The five year program (10 semesters) is designed to unify the basic and clinical sciences, as it is believed that scientific and professional development cannot be sharply separated but should proceed concurrently throughout the program
In the first three years the students are taught basic sciences – medical and dental courses – which are the foundation of clinical dentistry
The last two years serve the intensive clinical study of each of the various disciplines of dentistry with emphasis on the assessment and management of patients
In the final year students furthermore participate in elective programs, clinical conferences and hospital based practices. After the successful completion of the program, students are awarded the title Doctor of Dentistry.
