The Faculty of Dentistry in the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya is launching new 5-year degree programmes in English. The first two years will be taught exclusively in English, and from the third year onwards, students will join the overall programme. In their third year students will begin to do work experience in the University Dental Clinic (CUO), therefore they will need to have learned Spanish during their first two years.
The UIC’s Language Service will offer them the appropriate courses to achieve this.
The Degree in Dentistry at the UIC equips students with thorough scientific knowledge, technical skills and the ability to effectively apply them to the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of a wide range of dental diseases and ailments.
The programme addresses topics in dental structure and function, biomechanics of the normal and affected dental apparatus, as well as the most innovative techniques and procedures used in the treatment of abnormalities.
The curriculum emphasises skills in the basic sciences, so that students graduate with a solid scientific background and extensive experience confronting practical challenges before receiving their degree. The UIC University Dental Clinic (CUO) is equipped with the modern technology that proper dental treatment now calls for.
The fundamental objective of the curriculum for the Dentistry Degree at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya is to train professionals who are able to apply the scientific knowledge and technical skills they have acquired to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of oral diseases, ethically, efficiently and safely. Professionals should understand the need for professional development and lifelong learning, should be able to efficiently use advances in knowledge and technology and understand the central role played by the patient in therapeutic decision-making.
Applicants to the Dentistry Degree must have a baccalaureate or similar level of studies and that have passed the university entrance examination, without prejudice to any other entrance mechanisms stipulated by the current or future regulations on access to undergraduate degrees.
All candidates who meet the general requirements can apply to be admitted to the degree. However, the recommended intake profile is a person with previous studies in the field of healthcare sciences, with a vocation for science and healthcare and particularly in possession of the following qualities:
The competences listed below describe the basic levels of knowledge, attitudes, conduct and necessary technical skills that our students should have after obtaining their degree, showing they are ready to face the complete range of situations that will present themselves to them during their general professional practice:
Dentists should be competent to engage in an efficacious communication with patients, their relatives and friends, as the case may be, and also with the rest of health professionals involved in the care of patients.
Dentists should have enough knowledge and understanding of the basic biomedical, general medical, technical and clinical sciences in order to understand the normal and pathological conditions that are relevant to dentistry. Moreover, they should be competent to apply this information to critical situations.
Dentists should have the competence to conduct and register a general clinical record, and an oral and dental record, about the situation of the patient. This should include biological, medical, psychological and social information to enable the evaluation of the oral situation of patients of all ages. Dentists should have the competence to carry out an adequate physical examination, to interpret the clinical findings, and to ask for the complementary diagnostic tests that they may consider relevant.
Dentists should be competent in decision making, in reasoning and in carrying out clinical judgements leading up to a development of a differential diagnosis, whether provisional or final, of the gnosological process, including the interpretation of the clinical record and the data obtained during the clinical and x-ray examinations or other type of diagnostic tests. Dentists should be competent to formulate diagnoses and treatment plans for patients of all ages and conditions, while at the same time they should be able to identify those treatments that may exceed their abilities and, on this situation, refer them to the right professional.
After obtaining the degree, dentists should be competent:
After being awarded the degree, dentists should be competent to obtain the highest possible level of oral health among individuals and in the community.
All these objectives are worked on in depth on the different modules of the study programme and adapt to the abilities that students should acquire during their academic training.

Thanks to GLD Education, my life changing experience starts this september!
My life changing experience started with the help of GLD Education 6 months ago when I moved to Italy for my post graduate's studies, and my life hasn't been the same since. If time goes back, I will do it all over again!
With the help of GLD Education, I went to Czech republic for my master's studies, graduated and now I'm working in Prague. Thanks to GLD Education.
I went through the process with the help of GLD Education's members and soon I'll be arriving to Italy to start my new adventure.
