Program Description

This program lasts for one academic year, during which students will acquire both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. The purpose of the master is to provide clinicians with necessary means for a correct diagnostic and operative approach to an ideal implant prosthetic rehabilitation. Students will be drawn into modern implantology from the diagnosis to the prosthetic rehabilitation and will have the chance to get in contact with the most modern surgical techniques and technologies.

Istituto Stomatologico Toscano is the Partner for the Professional Master Program.

The Professional Master is qualified as SCIENCE due to its technical and scientific characteristics.

UniCamillus divides the teaching proposal of First and Second level Professional Masters and  Specialization Courses as follows:

  • Science: courses characterized by a purely technical and scientific approach
  • Plus: courses characterized by a multidisciplinary approach also containing elements and managerial and non-medical-surgical subjects
  • Experience: the courses mentioned above with high and particular experiential activities of training and internships in specialized structures. The students who will complete the course and pass the final exam will receive a title and training credits (CFU)

Location:

  • Lectures will be held at Istituto Stomatologico Toscano.
  • Practical training and internship at Istituto Stomatologico Toscano.

Final Certification and Formative Credits: all candidates who have completed the planned training and passes the final exam will receive a second level Professional Master Degree in Oral Implantology with the grant of 60 credits(CFU)  

Duration: The Master’s program lasts 12 months and includes a total time of 1.500 hours, divided into:

  • Practical activity, lectures, and seminars
  • Internship (750 hours)
  • Study and individual preparation activities including the preparation of the final exam

Attendance mode: Attendance is mandatory for at least 75% of the total hours of the Master. For frontal lectures and seminars (unless otherwise communication) a commitment of 4 sessions of approximately 5 days is foreseen for the entire duration of the Master. The total hours of training will be scheduled in accordance with the host structure.

Places available: A minimum number of 10 students is requested in order to activate the Master. Below the threshold of 10 UniCamillus can unilaterally decide not to activate the Master (with a return of any already paid participant fees) The maximum number of students is 30.

Objective

The Master aims to carry out a correct diagnostic approach and formulate a correct treatment plan, providing the basis for an ideal implant-prosthetic rehabilitation, deepening the knowledge of the implant-supported prosthesis, from design to implementation, which takes into due account the biological, functional and aesthetic implications. The knowledge of complications and their prevention will be deepened.

The educational objective of the Master is to develop specialized knowledge on the design and execution of the most recent oral implantology techniques as well as to acquire an in-depth knowledge of the safest and most modern techniques and technologies in the field of implant surgery.

Career opportunities

Those who will obtain the 2nd level Master in Oral Implantology will be able, independently of the laws in force in the various countries, to carry out their professional activity autonomously at private health facilities, in a dependent or free professional regime.

Methodology and educational program

The Master has a theoretical-practical approach aimed at providing learning on the problems of the surgical and rehabilitation prosthetic phases supporting the implant.

The teachings that are carried out within the Tuscan Dental Institute, aim to provide basic theoretical and methodological knowledge and consist of lectures and practical laboratory activities
