Scotland’s first implant masters course postponed
A landmark master’s degree in implantology has been put on hold due to essential restructuring of the Edinburgh Dental Institute’s (EDI) current educational programmes.
The course has been put back a year and will go ahead in September 2016.
Professor Angus Walls, director of the EDI explained that extension of the existing two-year taught MClinDent programmes to offer a full three-year taught DClinDent is essential to maintain the institute’s position as a leading provider of specialist training on the international market. This change also facilitates the processes for overseas students maintaining visas to study for their clinical courses.
He said: “Edinburgh has a reputation for running high-quality, well-organised, good clinical programmes and the last thing I want to do is run a bad one.”
