Bachelors in Medicine. Pre-Med Studies at EMU Time and again, EMU pre-med graduates report discovering they are better prepared than their counterparts in graduate school. In fact, over the past decade, over 80% of students who completed EMU’s pre-medical program were accepted into med school. EMU graduates credit our small class sizes, professors who nurtured them as individuals, and an environment that fostered personal growth and reflection about values, in addition to academic rigor. Hands-on learning and research collaboration EMU’s cadaver dissection program is one example of ‘academic rigor’ that accounts for exceptional preparation for graduate school. EMU is one of the few colleges in the state that offers a cadaver lab for undergraduate study and research. Hands-on original research along-side faculty members provides further preparation that puts EMU graduates ahead of many peers in graduate school. Some students publish their findings or present to professional societies. Research collaboration helps students identify interests and enhance critical and creative thinking skills. Other real-world learning occurs when students get involved in the local community, perhaps shadowing a physician, volunteering at a clinic, or working in a hospital or nursing home as a technician or nursing assistant. Liberal arts and cross-cultural focus Our broad liberal arts foundation also prepares graduates in unique ways. EMU core values include cross-cultural understanding and respect. Interfaith and inter-cultural dialogues and relationships are valued within the campus community. Cultural understanding can be an important selection criterion in gaining admission to medical school or other graduate programs. The quality of the teaching at EMU was fantastic for many reasons. -Dr. Chad Denlinger ’96 A state-of-the-art cadaver lab in Suter Science Center provides students with the right tools to get the hands-on experience needed to learn about the human body. -Wally Al-Kakhan, MA in biomedicine ’15 [-]

BDS in Dental Surgery

University of Birmingham - College of Medical and Dental Sciences
Campus Full time 5 years September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham

The course at Birmingham is regulated by the General Dental Council (GDC) and will provide you with a solid foundation of learning on which to base your clinical experience and patient care. The ongoing strand of whole patient care in Clinical Practice enables you to integrate speciality teaching and perform the most appropriate treatment for your patients. [+]

Bachelors in Medicine. Dentistry is a challenging and rewarding profession. In the context of an ageing population who are retaining teeth into old age, the importance of understanding interactions between general and oral health is paramount. Excellent communication skills are needed to enable dentists to treat patients as individuals and a sound understanding of the biological basis of oral disease and preventive approaches to care are essential foundations of dental practice. Advances in technology and dental materials have increased the scope of practice and the expansion in the numbers of Dental Care Professionals (DCPs) has led to an emphasis on the dentist’s role as a diagnostician and team leader together with the dentist focusing on undertaking complex, rather than routine, dental treatments. The course at Birmingham is regulated by the General Dental Council (GDC) and will provide you with a solid foundation of learning on which to base your clinical experience and patient care. The ongoing strand of whole patient care in Clinical Practice enables you to integrate speciality teaching and perform the most appropriate treatment for your patients. You will be taught in our brand new Dental Hospital and School, currently under development just a mile from the University's main campus in Edgbaston. As the first integrated, stand-alone dental hospital and dental school to be built in the UK for almost 40 years, the new £50 million hospital will provide world-class research facilities and a modern learning environment for more than 600 undergraduate and postgraduate students and trainees. The University of Birmingham is ranked 8th in for Dentistry in the UK according to the Complete University Guide and in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment, Dentistry was ranked first in the UK for research recognised as internationally excellent. In 2016, the results of the National Student Survey (NSS) showed that 96% of our students were satisfied with the teaching on this course. First year The early part of the programme lays the foundation for clinical practice. A range of biological science modules provide a systems-based approach to understanding the human body and incorporate a range of different subjects. These are delivered by the Medical School and they provide an important foundation for the Human Diseases modules later in the programme. Alongside these modules, you will have early contact with patients, observing and reflecting on treatment sessions in the dental hospital. You will also start to develop an understanding of being a professional and of patients’ perspectives through a large module taught at the School of Dentistry. A wide range of teaching methods are used, but the emphasis is on enquiry-based learning. You are also expected to become an independent learner and will be supported in this by our in-house virtual learning environment, the e-course. Second year The second year of the programme builds on the first, with an increased amount of time being spent at the School of Dentistry. Biological science modules focus on the head and oral cavity and other modules enable you to understand the wider context of dentistry and influences of patient behaviour on their oral health. You will undertake further sessions with senior students, assisting them during their patient care. These modules are assessed at the end of the spring term. The summer term of second year is devoted to developing a range of practical skills and understanding about practical aspects of patient care. You will work in the clinical skills laboratory on phantom heads preparing and restoring teeth. You will also work with your peers, taking medical histories, carrying out dental examinations and also learning how to administer local anaesthetics. You will also gain understanding of a research project in the periodontology teaching area and other academic work will focus on dental pathology, radiography and restorative dentistry. Third year At the start of the third year you begin treating your own patients under supervision within the dental hospital and start to put into practice the skills and knowledge that you have developed in the early years. This core of Clinical Practice, where you have your own small list of patients, continues through until final year and enables you to understand the importance of continuing care and integrated clinical practice and working with a dental team. At the beginning of the spring term, you will be introduced to other clinical speciality teaching areas which provide a basis for understanding different aspects of patient treatment and will contribute to whole patient care in Clinical Practice. In parallel with the clinical work on patients, you will undertake other academic subjects including the Introduction to Human Disease module. This comprises Infection, Pathology and Pharmacology, and builds on your solid biological science foundation. This area of teaching is particularly important in helping you to understand the links between general and oral health and the impact of medical treatment on patient care. Dental Public Health and Behavioural Science is also a strand module which starts in this year and enables you to put clinical dentistry into a wider context of population health and dental service provision. Fourth year You will be introduced to two new speciality teaching areas this year, paediatric dentistry and oral medicine. In paediatric dentistry you will learn how to adapt the clinical and patient management skills you have already gained to children within the Dental Hospital and later in the year, in an outreach clinic. This will help you to understand the environment which children are growing up in and give you the opportunity to work in your own surgery with a qualified dental nurse, thus further appreciating the importance of team working. Oral Medicine gives you the opportunity to hone your diagnostic skills, further appreciate the link between oral disease and general disease and build on the knowledge and understanding you have gained from the Introduction to Human Disease and the Clinical Human Disease module. Outreach placements for adult primary dental care start in the summer term and continue through until Easter of final year. These take place in community clinics and provide you with experience to support your transition into Dental Foundation Training after graduation. There is also an opportunity for you to undertake an individually tailored module, either an elective project on a subject of your choice, dental or non-dental, at home or abroad. If you prefer, you may remain on clinic to extend your range of experience or consolidate your learning. Fifth year In this final year of your BDS programme, whole patient care is the focus of your clinical work and a programme of tutorials and lectures prepares you for practising once you have qualified. You will continue with some speciality teaching, for example oral surgery, and you will also undertake a block of dental sedation teaching to help you manage extremely anxious patients. There will also be an opportunity to choose a special study module which will allow you to expand your knowledge, skills and experience in a clinical area of your choice. Why study this course University of Birmingham Dental Hospital and School: The new University of Birmingham Dental Hospital and School will be the first integrated, stand-alone dental hospital and dental school to be built in the UK for almost 40 years.
