The main goal of the new course is to graduate excellent dentists, by complementing the learning of well established concepts of the traditional study course with the achievement of all the knowledge and skills requested by the highest international standards, making good use of the newly available technologies and of the digital devices, that render us advanced in basic and clinical research, as well as in professional training.The foreign students will have the chance to integrate with Italian colleagues and into the localcommunity of Siena, being exposed to an international and intercultural experience/formative experience/educational experience.
Distinctive characteristics of the future graduates will be the respect for the dignity of the human beings and the conscientious care for the patients’ needs.
Our graduated Dentists will have the opportunity to find jobs not only in Italy, but also in other European countries, as well as in the world developing countries.
A recent surveyby the Italian Association of Dentists showed that 91,5% of dentists are stably employed within three years of graduation, as in other European countries.
