The SEGi University Bachelor of Dental Surgery students are exposed to early patient contact and clinical training, with an emphasis on the recognition and prevention of oral diseases. The dynamic curriculum is delivered within a problem-based learning approach, with an emphasis on contextual learning of relevant scientific information. The curriculum also reflects the way in which students will be expected to identify and address clinical problems, placing a higher emphasis on delivery through engagement with the students.
We aim to produce dental professionals that are competent and caring and able to anticipate and repond to the changes in community needs, medical science and technology. One such way of developing these expertise is through early exposure to patients and clinical training, allowing students to develop high levels of clinical skills and medical knowledge.
A dentist can choose to further his/her career from a wide range of specialty disciplines — Dental Public Health, Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Pediatric Dentistry, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Forensic Odontology, Endodontics and Special Needs Dentistry.
These are some of the subjects that you will explore during your years of study. The subjects will give you the breadth and depth to graduate with a full understanding of mechanical engineering.
The assessment system is intended to monitor the students’ progress, motivate learning, develop reflective skills and fulfil competency requirements. The combination of assessments that a student takes in the dental programme helps determine the achievement of the competencies required of a new dentist.
Students will be assessed through continuous assessments and Professional Examinations. Formative assessment of competency is conducted intra-course and at the end of a project. Students are mandated to submit written work throughout the programme to obtain formative feedback.
Semester 1 Examinations will be conducted at the end of the first Semester. The marks from Semester 1 Examination, PBL/CBL, practical, mini-tests, log book, and tutorials etc., will contribute 40% of the Professional Examination marks at the end of each academic year. The Professional Examination marks will constitute 60% of the total marks.
Written examinations may be in the form of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ), Modified Essay Questions (MEQ) and Short Answer Questions (SAQ), Objective Structured Practical Examinations (OSPE) and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE).
