The DClinDent is a degree by coursework and includes a supervised research project and report. Coursework covers topics in biostatistics, research methodology, oral and maxillofacial radiography and radiology, practical aspects of specialist dentistry and discipline-oriented research.
The Clinical Dentistry program from The University of Western Australia involves didactic teaching, weekly seminars, journal clubs and clinics combined with a supervised research project. Interdisciplinary teaching and research opportunities are available. The research methodology and the research project are worth 25 per cent of the degree.
The research work must be presented as a formal research report/dissertation, and in some disciplines there may be an extra requirement that the research report must be submitted to suitable professional journals for consideration for publication. Additional training is provided in the practical aspects of extended patient care and patient-oriented research in the specialised field of dentistry, including the ethics of clinical research and effective communication of clinical research results.
Graduates are eligible for registration as specialists in the appropriate discipline with the relevant registration authorities in Australia and New Zealand in their chosen field, provided they are eligible for registration as a dentist. The course consists of didactic work, clinical practice, laboratory and research work.
