The MSc Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics (MDCDP) is divided into 6 years
The fundamental educational objective is to impart theoretical knowledge and technical competences required to practice Dentistry in accordance with the common standards of EU dentistry schools. In particular, all graduates will receive an adequate and excellent education so as to practice Dentistry at the highest level, and also competences directed towards various scientific research specializations and/or similar thematic areas.
On completion of the course of study, the graduate will have gained technical knowledge and skills to take place professionally in the dental field, both public and private.
In the general aspects, the MDCDP biennium addresses the study of basic educational activities aimed at making known to the students the fundamentals of the structural organization and of the vital functions of the human body, and it comprises courses that address issues related to the relationship dentist-patient and the comprehension of the underlying principles of the scientific method. The following triennium comprises the study of disciplines of medical, surgical and specialistic interest, with special reference to clinical issues related to dental pathologies, to semiotics of the oral cavity, to the neuro-muscular disorders of the head and neck, and to oral manifestations. The educational activities are carried out in conjunction with the study of dental disciplines and with the professionalizing clinical practice. The sixth year includes a professionalizing educational activity aimed at the care of the patient with odontostomatological issues. Frontal seminar teaching is aimed at the interdisciplinary discussion of assigned clinical cases.

Graduate Program Director: Prof.

Graduates of the Master Degree Course in Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics can practice the dental profession following the passing the State exam and the enrollment in the Order of Dentists.
They will be allowed to practice the dental profession in the various roles and clinical, sanitary and biomedical professional fields.
They will also be able to perform managerial activities of 1st and 2nd level in facilities of the National Health Service, in accordance with the current laws.
Job opportunities of UniCamillus students ontologically have a further international vocational outlet, with particular reference to areas of the world in which health deficiency is higher and often tragic. The Athenaeum invites to enrol young students with a strong humanitarian vocation, and who can potentially dedicate, if not all, at least part of their professional life in service of less fortunate populations of the South of the World.
Moreover, considering that many students of this University come from such countries, it will be inevitable – through precise placement actions developed by the University thanks to its international network – to supply sanitary centers of developing countries that are currently counting (a bit too much) on voluntary work of health professionals of Western countries, by trying to increase the number of local health professionals.
Teaching Courses are divided into semesters.
Integrated courses are the mandatory courses expected from the study plan. They are made of various courses, that may even be of different scientif-disciplinary areas, with the purpose of achieving a common specific educational objective.
Elective courses are carried out only in the areas of optional educational activites, and they include academic lectures and/or seminars.
Type of teaching methods. Within the courses it is defined the division of the CFUs (Crediti Formativi Universitari; “Univarsity Educational Credits”) and of the educational timing in the various forms of teaching, as follows:
Ex-cathedra lessons: It is defined as an “ex-cathedra lesson” (from now on “frontal lesson”) the discussion of a specific subject identified with a title and that is part of the educational curriculum intended for the Study Course, carried out by a Professor, according to a pre-determined calendar, and imparted to students regularly enrolled in a specific year, even divided in smaller groups.
Seminar: The seminar is an educational activity with the same characteristics of the frontal lesson, but it is carried out by more Professors simultaneously, even pertaining to different disciplinary fields (or with different competences), and, as such, it is recorded in the lesson registry. Also clinical-pathological Conferences eventually carried out in clinical teachings are recognized as seminar activities.
Professionalizing educational activity: Clinical practice activites are aimed at making the students gain specific professional skills and competences. The responsibility of planning and organizing the clinical practice devolves to a Coordinator of professionalizing educational activities, who avails of Tutors with the same professional profile or who belong to a similar scientific disciplinary field, with a consolidated professional and educational experience, assigned with roles to the didactic structure and chosen in accordance with health facilities where the educational activity is carried out. In the internship facilities, health professionals are chosen as referents/supervisors and cooperate during the conduction of the internship.

Actors of the Quality Assurance process
The Quality Assurance Group (QA) is chaired by the Director of the Degree Course or by the President, who is the Responsible for the Quality of the Course; it ensures the proper and regular performance of the activities, in coordination with the Academic Quality Assurance and with the QA referents of the University.
The QA contributes to the design, implementation and verification of the activities of the Degree Course
The Review Group performs the following functions:
a) identifying the improvements, reporting the person in charge and specifying the deadlines and the indicators that allow verifying the degree of implementation;
b) verifying the achievement of the objectives pursued or identifying any reasons for a failure or partial achievement;
c) drafting the Annual Monitoring Report (AMR), which is sent to the Evaluation Unit and the Academic Quality Assurance through the University Quality Office.
During the statutory transitional phase, in order to facilitate the start-up phase of the QA System, UniCamillus considered it functional to choose the appointment at the level of each Degree Course of the only Quality Assurance Group, which is also called to perform the functions of the Review Group.
The QA has the task of monitoring the progress of the Degree Course management and of drafting the Annual Monitoring Report and the cyclical review report (RCC) in collaboration with the President of the Teaching Committee.
