Taught Postgraduate Programmes
The major emphasis of this programme is to train the student to be a clinically competent paediatric dentist, and hence the programme of clinical, laboratory, and didactic coursework is designed with this goal in mind.
On completion of the course, the candidate will have completed 3 years of formal training that is recognised as part of the requirements for specialization in Paediatric Dentistry in Hong Kong. Furthermore, the research project and thesis will prepare the candidate in scientific methodology so as to be equipped to critically analyse the literature and pursue a course of independent research, and to eventually become established in a field of research. This second emphasis should prepare the candidate for an academic career, if so desired. In addition, it also strengthens the candidate’s credentials as a clinician.
