Course summary

Overview

Our Maxillofacial Prosthetic Rehabilitation MSc has been designed for maxillofacial prosthetists, technologists and prosthodontists to learn to use cutting-edge digital technology for intra and extra-oral prosthetic facial rehabilitation in clinical practice. Delivered primarily online, the course will enable you to develop your technical skills and develop higher standards of clinical practice. The content is prepared by world-leading experts, augmented with face-to-face training, and enables you to enhance your knowledge of prosthetic facial rehabilitation and improve your clinical and technical skills while continuing to practice.

Course detail

This course will allow you to develop and demonstrate your extended knowledge, understanding and advanced skills in the treatment of patients who require prosthetic facial rehabilitation. You will study and practice a broad range of treatments for the replacement of missing hard and soft tissues, using both traditional and advanced digital technologies. The course includes: Advanced prosthodontics, implantology, ocular prosthetics, fixed and removable prosthodontics, treatment planning and prosthesis design. Digital technology, colour science, medical emergencies, cross infection control and care of medically/clinically compromised patients. Biomaterials science, craniofacial implants, silicone elastomers and gels, tissue engineering and bone substitutes, biocompatibility. Psychology of managing terminally ill patients, counselling skills and forming integrated care plans, or intra oral implantology, and advanced fixed and removable prosthodontics.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught mostly online through King’s E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Our students participate in online tutorials and discussion groups, interacting with expert tutors and their fellow students. Face-to-face lectures and hands-on training take place in blocks in the first two years. Students are required to undertake and submit four cases of clinical work in their place of work. Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include written assignments and clinical case reports. Coursework contributes approximately 40% and examinations approximately 60% to your final mark with the exception of the Clinical Practice module which is assessed entirely through coursework, and the Maxillofacial Prosthetic Rehabilitation Research Report module which is assessed on a dissertation.
