What is the treatment protocol to be followed with regards to bruxism?
I have applied for a program which granted a PhD in Orthodontics in 5 years. What do you think about this program? Please give me answers with reasons.
THIS IS Program Description:
The five-year PhD program provides the academic and clinical experience for a successful private practice or academic career. Students enrolled in the PhD program will not have the option of transferring to the MSc program. Clinical training will be integrated through the first four years of the program. Treatment cases will be started in the first two years and completed in the third and fourth years with progressively reducing clinical commitment. Decompression of the clinical training will allow students to complete all of the cases they start, resulting in improved clinical experience.
PhD students will complete a major research project equipping graduates with the expertise to conduct grant competitive research of international prominence. To support the development of an academic career, the final two years of the PhD program will include Undergraduate and Graduate teaching. The following courses are offered:
• OBIOL 500 (Oral Biology I) - (3-0-0) Functional anatomy of head and neck. Development, structure, function, and biochemistry of connective tissue associated with the jaws.
Additional courses related to specific area of research may be required. Student Research Students are required to complete research within the established research focus of the program and complete a paper format thesis. Students submit their research results to peer reviewed journals for publication and present their research at an international scientific meeting prior to completion of the program. It is anticipated that all student research projects will result in publication.
