If you are a general Dental practitioner and want to develop the necessary competence to safely and effectively undertake advanced general practice treatments, this program will meet your needs.
This program is offered with the following majors:
This program is offered full-time and part-time at the Gold Coast campus.
The program is tailored to the needs of practising dentists and is designed on the principles of blended learning and work-based learning. Over the period of study it will combine face-to-face seminars, pre-clinical training, team assignments, online seminars and lectures, supervised and unsupervised clinical practice and mentoring.
Face-to-face seminars, pre-clinical training and supervised clinical training will require on-campus attendance at Griffith University while the remaining modes of delivery will be flexible and will also utilise the student's working environment (work-based learning).
Due to the need for students to develop complex clinical and technical skills throughout this program, and the flexible mode of delivery, courses may extend beyond the standard teaching trimester (that is, commencing earlier and extending later than the standard teaching trimester). Exact dates over which these extended courses will run will be published on a trimester-by-trimester basis in the Academic Calendar.
The program emphasises work-based learning and will utilise the experience and the working environment of the participants. The program aims to directly benefit practitioners by enabling the immediate transfer of the developed competencies into clinical practice as the student advances through the program. In addition, the student will be encouraged to document and share experiences from his/her practice.
Continuous mentoring will allow the student's practice to become an extension of the program and ensure the timely and effective application of the acquired skills. Unsupervised clinical sessions will be carried out in the student's own environment towards the end of the program.
You will be able to deliver quality services within general dental practice. You may also continue towards a research degree.
Applicants are advised that the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) requires Dentists to demonstrate English language skills that are suitable for registration. Further information is available on the AHPRA website.
