Instead, a new program of three years duration of coursework and research is being developed at doctoral level. Three dental elective units of study: (a) Preventive Dentistry, (b) Population Oral Health, and (c) Dental Health Services will be offered by the School of Public Health, Faculty of Medicine to candidates of the Master of Public Health or the Master of International Public Health. 1.2.9 Transitional arrangements (for continuing students) Last year of student intake under existing Resolutions: Year of last intake Course area Local International Master of Dental Science (Community 2006 2006 Oral Health and Epidemiology) GradDipComOH&Epid 2006 2006 MDSc (Endodontics) Prior to 1998 Prior to 1998 MDSc (Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgery) Prior to 1998 Prior to 1998 GradDipClinDent(Advanced Practice) Prior to 1998 Prior to 1998 There are no students remaining in the MDSc(Endodontics), MDSc(Oral and Maxillo-facial Surgery) and the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Advanced Practice).
