P.G. Diploma in Advanced Oral Implantology

OVERVIEW

This year concerns the successful implant rehabilitation of either patients requiring complex treatments, or those presenting major atrophies of jaw bones combined with unfavourable intermaxillary relationships. It aims essentially to train scientifically and clinically, both graduates of the first year course on “Comprehensive Implantology” and other experienced implantologists, who wish to extend their surgical competence to all forms of comple procedures and bone grafting techniques.

Enrollment

  • First year graduates will directly be enrolled to this advance level progressing towards their ambition of becoming Post Graduate Diploma holders.
  • Experienced practitioners not having ambition of pursuing Post Graduate Diploma or Degree course can attend this advance level on modular basis but the exit award would be inferior to the Diploma.

A glance at second year:

  • This year will mainly cover topics on managing bone defects, role of biomaterials and biocompatibility in complex implant cases, maxillary sinus grafting, surgical and prosthetic rehabilitation of partially and completely edentulous cases.
  • Four sessions of advanced clinical implantology of three days each covering curriculum didactically, clinically and practically.
  • All students must perform one complex case surgery under mentor’s supervision for successfully qualifying to advance level.
  • Surgical session this year usually takes place in OT environment of our associated hospitals.
  • All demonstrative surgeries or supervised surgeries would be according to designated topics for that particular module.
  • Students of diploma or degree course can perform supervised surgeries during any module but short course students will get to perform supervised surgeries during pre designated session.
  • This year assessment will be through both written and oral examination
