The Master's Degree Program in Dentistry from Masaryk University is implemented within a credit system of study that is fully compatible with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) creating thus conditions for students for completing part of their studies at European partner universities. The study is divided into 10 semesters and is based on gradual passage of the student through theoretical, preclinical and later clinical subjects. The curriculum is conceived on the principle of logical continuity of subjects/disciplines where the enrollment into the individual subjects is adjusted by a system of prerequisites (i.e. pre-existing knowledge acquired by studying the preceding subjects as a necessary basis for follow-up subjects) for maximum efficiency. The study includes four continuous practices in the laboratory/practice of the dentist.
The study of the Dentistry Program is completed by a State Rigorous Exam which consists of a practical and theoretical part in the following disciplines: 1) Conservative Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry and Periodontology, 2) Prosthetic Dentistry and Orthodontics, and 3) Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The study leads to acquiring key knowledge and skills that are - in general terms - understanding of functioning of the human body and its parts in health and illness, understanding the biological, physical and chemical principles on which diagnosis, rational effective treatment and disease prevention are based, with a focus on the orofacial area.
An integral part of the Master's Degree Program in Dentistry is the obligatory professional practice in health care facilities, which the students receive from the 4th semester of the course of study up to the end of their study.
Before the SRE in the 10th semester, the students undergo intensive seven-week internship in all fields of dentistry, with the focus on the complex treatment of patients in conservative dentistry, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, prosthetic dentistry, orthodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgeryIn addition to internships in contractual health facilities, the students have a further summer vacation practice (typically in private facilities, in laboratories and at clinical workplaces) in the scope of 210 hours:
- after the 2nd semester, practice in the dental laboratory (1 week) and in the surgery (1 week) within the subject Preclinical Dentistry - a total of 2 weeks.
- after the 4th semester as a complement to Preventive Dentistry - 1 week with the corresponding dental hygienist practice.
- after the 6th semester –2 weeks of professional practice in the field of Practical Dentistry.
- after the 8th semester – 4 weeks of professional practice in the field of Practical Dentistry
Graduates are prepared to perform independently the practice of a dental practitioner in health care facilities of all types, to start training for obtaining professional certificates for the individual dentistry specialties and to start specialized training in orthodontics, oral and maxillo-facial surgery and clinical dentistry. They can also find their application in the academic sphere and other institutions involved in science, research, development and innovation, as well as in the pharmaceutical industry. Graduates also have the opportunity to continue in doctoral study programs.
