The primary objective of the IMU Postgraduate Diploma in
Endodontics is to provide dental practitioners the opportunity to
enhance their knowledge and skills in endodontics; to plan and
treat a range of patients needing minimal to moderately difficult
root canal therapy. This programme is designed to support the
training and learning of working dental practitioners by using a
flexible modular mode of delivery and a wide array of teaching
methods supplemented with guidance from personal tutors.
The training emphasises the provision of care based on current
evidence, appropriate technologies and specialised techniques.
The programme covers knowledge acquisition through
face-to-face and online lectures and case-based discussion,
skills development through hands-on training in the simulation
lab, and clinical experience through patient care at the IMU
Oral Health Centre and at the student’s own workplace. This
programme aims to produce graduates able to coordinate a
multidisciplinary approach in managing oral health care, and
provide accessible and affordable endodontic care. Graduates
are expected to be able to update their skills through lifelong learning, and share their expertise with their peers.
