520 College of Dental Medicine—Postdoctoral Programs needs. They incorporate the knowledge gained from didactic lectures as they provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary oral health care for patients at a level of skill and complexity beyond that accomplished in the PG-1 year. Rotations are required for this course to provide more complex and advanced patient experiences to the PG-2 residents. These include PG-2 resident rotations to • NSU’s Pediatric Dental Clinic • NSU’s Dental Center at Cypress Creek • NSU’s College of Dental Medicine Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery located at Broward Hospital CDM 8151—AEGD Clinic IV This course is a continuation of CDM 8150. Residents participate in, and provide comprehensive clinical dental treatment of patients with a variety of oral health care needs.

In addition to the Certificate in Endodontics, residents can also earn the Master of Science degree. Information on that degree can be found in this section. The clinical program in endodontics will focus on the delivery of patient care that is supported by both contemporary concepts and advanced technological developments. It will include, but not be limited to, the use of magnification in practice, the use of nickel titanium instruments, electronic apex locators, ultrasonic instrumentation and irrigation, digital and CBCT radiography, pulpal preservation procedures, regenerative procedures, and a wide range of surgical interventions. The program is bolstered in the delivery of contemporary care by its integration with the other dental specialties as appropriate. The didactic program consists of a core curriculum that is designed to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the basic sciences as they relate to the specialty of endodontics and patient care. This basis is then supported by an in-depth review of the endodontic literature from both historical and contemporary perspectives and is designed to provide the resident student with the knowledge necessary to achieve board certification by the American Board of Endodontics. To further the achievement of the residents and to provide the necessary educational experiences, the program will include experiences in research and the writing of protocols and, where indicated, grants for support, writing technical and scientific manuscripts, the potential for manuscript publication, experiences in the provision of lectures and seminars, and interaction with colleagues and leaders in endodontic education in professional meetings and seminars. The courses that exist within the endodontic curriculum are required of all residents and include the following: CDM 5611–5618—Current Literature Review This course focuses on monthly seminars that address the endodontic literature from a wide range of evidence-based and open access journals. These publications are reviewed and analyzed critically, with the intent of teaching residents how to read with discrimination. Residents will learn how to identify meaningful scientific and clinical merit and to integrate the information gleaned from these reviews with both the biomedical sciences and clinical delivery of patient care. CDM 5621–5624—Classic Literature Review This course consists of weekly seminars for first-year residents that focus on key endodontic literature that has provided the historical and contemporary basis for this specialty. Selected topics will provide the aspiring resident with an introduction to essential topics and clinical challenges in endodontics. This will include, but is not limited to, diagnosis, radiographic interpretation, treatment planning and case selection, tooth morphology, concepts within the provision of nonsurgical root canal procedures, regenerative initiatives, and treatment outcomes. It will also include pulpal preservation principles and procedures, such as the biological basis as it relates to both pulpal responses to adverse challenges and microbiological implications; the spread of infection; the disease process beyond the confines of the root canal system; and, when indicated, the surgical management of these challenges. These seminars use a topical format, providing the resident with the opportunity to investigate concepts that have molded and characterized the essence of this specialty over the past century. Residents will be taught how to read and analyze critically and relate their assessments to contemporary concepts and practices. CDM 5625–5628—Classic Literature Review This course is a continuation of CDM 5621–5624. It is designed for second-year residents to explore diverse and integrated topics not only within the scope of endodontics, but as this discipline integrates with other specialties. These topics
