The MSc Advanced and Specialist Healthcare Articulated Pathway (Advanced Dental Clinical Practice) is a part-time Master’s-level programme studied over 18 months. It provides the route for FGDP post-registration Diploma and other appropriately qualified students to achieve a full Master's qualification.

The programme is delivered by Kent's Centre for Professional Practice (CPP), based at the Medway campus. It is a joint collaboration between the Centre and the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) (FGDP (UK)).

Who is the programme for?
