About

Master of Dental Surgery in Endodontics at The University of Hong Kong is a taught programme designed specifically for dentists who intend to pursue specialist endodontic training. 

Overview

The programme enables students to acquire knowledge of the relevant clinical literature, develop a scientific approach to problem solving, learn to assess scientific papers and develop advanced clinical-endodontic skills. A research project and dissertation will be required.
