3 years full-time
For Continuing Students Only
If you are a qualified dentist, this degree will provide you with an avenue to pursue high-level studies and develop advanced clinical skills in periodontology.
The Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Periodontology is an extended Masters program (AQF Level 9).
This program will be delivered full-time, on-campus, with some clinical experience in the outplacement facilities of the School.
All students will be required to participate in one undergraduate teaching session per week. Undergraduate teaching is an important component of postgraduate coursework degrees as it facilitates the ability of postgraduate students to deepen and widen their understanding of a dental specialty by being placed in a position where they have to transfer knowledge in a clear and concise manner to more junior colleagues. However, in sensitivity to the relative large workloads that postgraduate students have, their involvement in such teaching will be limited.
Students will be encouraged to attend continuing education courses of relevance to periodontics, both locally and nationally. Once sufficiently senior they may contribute to Griffith CPD provision for general practitioners. Occasional attendance at international congresses will be encouraged at student's own expense, or subsidised on occasion by industry or grants.
Work-integrated learning activities integrate theoretical learning with its application in the workplace. The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in the degree program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
In this program you will spend time in the work/professional environment at Griffith University's Dentistry and Oral Health Clinic and in a Queensland Health facility. Accordingly, students are required to meet the registration requirements of the Australian Dental Council and may be required to provide evidence of immunisation status to demonstrate compliance with the Queensland Health Policy for Immunisation of Health Care Workers. Details of any requirements will be advised during the course of your program.
The Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Periodontology is accredited by the Australian Dental Council.
