Details of program During the four semesters of the master's degree program, students acquire the basic knowledge, skills and capabilities together with the technical and interpersonal qualities and approaches required for future practice as a dentist in the primary care of the population. To achieve this, the skill levels specified in the learning objectives catalog must be achieved. The skill levels cover the areas of diagnosis, case planning, prophylaxis, therapy, reconstruction, after-care, administration, patient and practice management and professionalism. In the clinical course, students make dental diagnoses under supervision, plan treatment options with appointed tutors and clinical senior physicians and undertake the treatment as individual interventions or overall reconstruction under supervision. All examinations during the course, as well as the master's degree, are regulated by the faculty. The final examination is a federal multiple-choice test to which the learning objectives catalog for the whole of Switzerland applies.
