This programme aims to equip students to diagnose complex dentofacial anomalies; to formulate a treatment plan and predict its course; to collaborate in multidisciplinary teams for the treatment of orthodontic/surgical problems and care of cleft palate patients; and to practise orthodontics to a high professional and ethical standard.
The coursework will provide students with knowledge of the relevant literature and the necessary experience to integrate theoretical and clinical knowledge in respect of the management and orthodontic treatment of patients with complex craniofacial deformities in the interface with maxillofacial surgery and other related disciplines.
Students will be required to plan and conduct a research or clinical project, and present it as a written report to a committee of Internal and External Examiners.
