NSU HPD Catalog 2021-2022

518 College of Dental Medicine—Postdoctoral Programs Postdoctoral Programs NSU’s College of Dental Medicine developed postdoctoral advanced education programs in several fields starting in the fall of 1997. There are training positions available in endodontics, oral andmaxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontology, prosthodontics, and advanced education in general dentistry. These programs are supervised by board-certified and educationally qualified dental specialists. Lectures, seminars, and multidisciplinary conferences related to patients and their dental treatment, as well as in research, are conducted. Students also serve as instructors in the predoctoral laboratory and clinic. An original research project must be completed by each student. Upon successful completion of the program requirements, trainees receive certificates in their respective specialties. Postdoctoral Core Courses All postdoctoral students are required to take the following courses during their first year: CDM 5000—Advanced Dental Radiology Consideration of hard and soft tissue craniofacial imaging modalities, including MRI, tomography, and digital imaging. CDM 5004—Advanced Oral Histology and Embryology Cytological and developmental considerations in embryological, fetal, and neonatal human craniofacial growth and development. CDM 5005—Introduction to Postdoc Education This course is designed for postgraduate residents entering their first year of postgraduate education at the College of Dental Medicine. Topics covered include implant dentistry, caries risk management, professional relations, tobacco cessation, domestic violence, ethics, standards of care and informed consent, infection control, riskmanagement, dental photography, and dental lasers. CDM 5006—Fundamentals of Biostatistics Analysis of descriptive and inferential statistics as used in contemporary biomedical research, including electronic-based statistical programs. CDM 5002—Research Design The objective of this course is to learn how to plan research projects, initiate the projects, and effectively present the findings. Critical evaluation of the literature about the field of interest will be emphasized. CDM 5003—Advanced Microbiology and Cell Biology This course offers graduate training in microbiology, including virology, bacteriology, microbial genetics, and microbial pathogenesis. CDM 5008—Advanced Medical Physiology This course gives a detailed examination of cells and their transport—cardiac, pulmonary, and acid base—as related to maintenance of oral health and onset of disease.
