The Master’s Degree Program ‘University Master in Implant Dentistry’ (UMID) is designed for the general dentist who has already taken the first step towards the field of implantology. You have already placed implants and now want to develop your practical skills and build up solid, scientific knowledge in order to provide safe, appropriate and efficient treatments.
The 18 months modular graduate degree program takes your time constraints and job responsibilities into consideration. You have to travel six times to University center in Versilia during your course of studies. Each stay lasting between 4 and 6 days: you’ll have lessons, hands-on courses and live surgeries thus grow through input from our international faculty, guest lectures and fellow students.
After successful completion of the program, graduates will receive the academic title of “Second level Master of in Implant Dentistry”. The graduates will be able to independently plan and implement therapy concepts for the treatment of patients requiring dental implant prosthetics. In addition, graduates will also have the skills required to select, analyse and fully integrate into their own practice a full range of treatments and knowledge in this field of dental implantology.
Through lessons on theory and hands-on participation activities the Masters course aims to help the student acquire specific proficiency and clinical experience in laser wavelengths principally used in dentistry. The clinical experience activities will be held in the new department of laser therapy and surgery, with live operations on patients performed by participants under the guidance and supervision of teachers.
The course concludes with a Master’s thesis on topics of implant that will prepare the student during the year and will discuss at the end of the course.
