Course overview

In response to the policy of placing increased emphasis on graduate schools we, in graduate school of dentistry,
reconstructed our department of dentistry by integrating six basic and clinical research uniting courses. We have been also promoting the acceptance of foreign students from China, Korea and other countries, as well as already working members of the society.
In our education curriculum we support the notion of appointing multiple instructors to a single student and put emphasis on an early launch of doctoral research, acquisition of expertise and interdisciplinary perspective.

To be more precise, we educate on the latest research findings of our teaching staff during the first year's "Dentistry Theory" course, and teach various experiment procedures necessary for individual research in the "Experiment Technique Training" course.
In addition, we educate on various effective ways to complete your doctoral dissertation in our special training program for writing doctoral dissertations which we hold from the first through fourth years.
In particular presenting and discussing your own research plan in the "Research Theme Selection Conference" for the first year students is useful for the early launch of individual research.

Furthermore the "Dental Seminars" in which small groups of students will work on recent research themes is designed to develop their sense of purpose and increase their motivation to conduct research.
We also do our best to improve the quality of your dissertation by enhancing the dissertation screening system by introducing preliminary examination system where the teaching staff could evaluate your work from multiple angles.
As a result an increasing number of academic dissertations submitted by students in this graduate school are being praised for their high quality and getting published in international scientific journals.
On top of that, in recent years a large number of young scientists have been awarded various academic awards for continuing the research they started as graduate students in our school.

Requirements for completion

To graduate from this doctoral program (dentistry curriculum) you will need to spend four or more years studying according to the program and earn 30 or more credits from the courses listed below (9 or more credits from "Dentistry Theory", 6 or more credits from "Practical Dentistry", 6 or more credits from "Experiment Technique Training Course" and 9 credits from "Doctoral Dissertation Special Training Course").
In addition you will also need to submit your doctoral dissertation and pass its examination as well as the final test.
In the case of excellent research achievements three years of enrollment will be held enough for graduation.
In case of employment after the inspection process you will be allowed to take a certain period of time which can be longer than four years to complete the curriculum.
