Clinical practice: more dominant from Year 2 onwards.
Teamwork, professionalism and social responsibility: runs as a continuum throughout all years.
Evidence-based dentistry, dental public health, global health and research: all years.
Academic advising and graduate attributes: overarching support of individual development through feedback, monitoring and career development throughout all years.
Learning and Teaching
Practical sessions (laboratories, IT labs, clinical skills labs and clinics).
