Master’s (12 to 36 months) and Doctorate (24 to 48 months)
Preparation for teaching is by means of intensive training and direct participation in both undergraduate activities at all levels and scientific congresses. To prepare for research, students are trained in the basic techniques of histopathology; immunohistochemistry; transmission and scanning electron microscopy; histomorphometry; cell and microorganism cultures; molecular methodologies; and handling of laboratory animals. During extension activities students receive clinical training by providing both outpatient and hospital care for patients with oral diseases. They also take part in histopathological examination of oral lesions, yet another service provided free to the community by the teaching staff on the program. The services provided in this way highlight the social benefits of applying knowledge acquired on the program.
