The five-year Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) programme is designed incorporating competency-based learning principles and is divided into two phases in which both academic and practical elements of Dentistry are studied and practiced.
Phase 1 (the first two years of study) introduces you to basic medical and dental subjects. You will learn about the various body systems in health and disease, with topics geared towards the requirements of a dentist in training. You will also acquire the operative practical skills through the completion of a series of simulation exercises conducted throughout the second year.
Phase 2 starts from Year 3 to Year 5 in which much of the time is devoted to the step-by-step acquisition of clinical knowledge and practical skills necessary for competence in dentistry. You will spend a considerable amount of time in clinical contact with patients, in addition to the complementary educational activities such as didactic teaching, seminar, laboratory classwork, tutorials, presentation of clinical cases and projects. Clinical knowledge, skills, and behavior developed throughout this phase are consolidated in Comprehensive Dental Care clinics.
Applications for full time study programmes (STPM, Matriculation, STAM and Diploma/ Equivalent) must be submitted via Malaysia’s Ministry of Higher Education online application.
