This Dental Public Health course from The University of Manchester is especially suited to those who want to go on to undertake a PhD, but have limited experience of research.
You will collaborate online with colleagues from across the world to explore practical, evidence-based approaches to care, prevention and planning services.
The course has been recognised for higher training in the specialty and confers eligibility to sit the Diploma in Dental Public Health examination of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (DDPHRCS).
Our students come from a range of occupations, including clinicians, managers, commissioners, providers or researchers. Our tutors will work with you to apply what you learn within your own context and healthcare system.
They aim to enable you to:
- critically assess evidence that underlies oral health practice;
- use a population approach to health issues;
- demonstrate skills that contribute to public health policy-making and service planning;
