I have been involved in this programme from its inception. The programme aims to train students in the understanding of pulpal and periapical pathophysiology, selection of appropriate dental materials/instruments, fundamental rationale of clinical techniques and management of failed Endodontic cases of moderate difficulty. To facilitate smooth functioning and learning in IMU, the students would be assigned personal mentors to substantiate their academic pursuit.

“The primary objective of the IMU Postgraduate Diploma in Endodontics is to provide dental practitioners the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in Endodontics; to plan and treat a range of patients needing minimal to moderately difficult root canal therapy. This programme is designed to support the training and learning of working dental practitioners by using a flexible modular mode of delivery and a wide array of teaching methods supplemented with guidance from personal tutors. The training emphasises the provision of care based on current evidence, appropriate technologies and specialised techniques. An evidence-based patient-centered approach is used in advising patients concerning treatment options and prognosis. The programme covers knowledge acquisition through face-to-face and online lectures and case-based discussion, skills development through hands-on training in the simulation lab, and clinical experience through patient care at the IMU Oral Health Centre and at the student’s own workplace. This programme aims to produce graduates able to coordinate a multidisciplinary approach in managing oral health care, and provide accessible and affordable endodontic care. Graduates are expected to be able to update their skills through lifelong learning, and share their expertise with their peers.”
