522 College of Dental Medicine—Postdoctoral Programs CDM 6032—Immunoregulation of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases This course integrates the knowledge of immunoregulation to wound healing and current treatment strategies. At the completion of this course, all the residents will understand the physiological, biochemical, and immunological regulation of healthy and diseased periodontal and periimplant tissues. First-, second-, and third-year residents will also recognize the rationale of current materials and techniques used in periodontology and implant dentistry in relation to pathogenesis of periodontal and peri-implant diseases. CDM 6033—Current Literature, Case Discussion, and Topic Presentation in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry During this didactic course, first-, second-, and third-year residents will learn how to present a case and a topic using the material learned in seminars and core courses. This course will help residents to prepare for the In-Service examination and American Board of Periodontology Exam. At the completion of the course, residents will be able to stay up to date with the current literature in periodontics and implant dentistry. CDM 6034—Classic Literature in Periodontology and Implant Dentistry Classic Literature is a participatory seminar course for residents in periodontics in their first, second, and third year of training. Residents are responsible for obtaining, reading, abstracting, and understanding articles that have been identified as required reading. Additionally, residents are expected to be familiar with principles, materials, methods, and statistical analyses, which are necessary to understand the articles under discussion. Most importantly, residents are expected to collate the articles into a broader understanding, which becomes the basis for the therapy they provide to their patients. The seminar is led by a postgraduate resident on a rotating basis. The seminar leader is responsible for the planning and organization of the seminar, ensuring that the topic is covered in a logical basis with articles grouped into appropriate sections. CDM 6035—Advanced Periodontics: Diagnosis and Treatment Planning This course offers didactic instruction related to diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases. First-year residents and faculty members will discuss classic and current literature related to the diagnosis, prognosis, and nonsurgical and surgical treatment modalities of periodontal diseases. Firstyear residents will understand all the aspects related to periodontal examination, diagnostic, and photographs for case documentation. CDM 6050—Advanced Clinical Periodontics IV This course offers clinical instruction and demonstrations in the use of advanced periodontal and implant therapy. Residents will be exposed to multidisciplinary cases and will be able to make diagnosis and execute advanced treatment plans. CDM 6070—Advanced Clinical Periodontics VII This course will provide residents with a deep knowledge of quality patient care and allow them to become proficient in providing periodontal and implant surgical care. Also, it will help them develop the capabilities necessary to participate as members of the total health care team, as well as correlate the dental and medical literature with clinical practice. CDM 6130—Advanced Clinical Periodontics II This clinical course offers instruction related to the full scope of periodontal treatment planning. Residents will be exposed to diverse treatment modalities, including surgical and nonsurgical therapies. CDM 6150—Advanced Clinical Periodontics V This course offers clinical instruction in the treatment of advanced and complex cases. Periodontal, prosthodontics, and implant therapy modalities will be emphasized. CDM 6170—Advanced Clinical Periodontics VIII This course is designed to offer instruction on clinical and practice management. Residents will be assessing their clinical outcomes and be able to understand the importance of continuity maintenance of their cases. CDM 6230—Advanced Clinical Periodontics III This clinical course provides instruction that will lead the resident to have sufficient number of diagnostic, nonsurgical, and surgical clinical experiences. It will also cover implant therapy as a treatment modality. CDM 6250—Advanced Clinical Periodontics VI This course is designed to offer clinical instruction in the treatment and patient management of complex cases in conjunction with other disciplines. POSTDOCTORAL PROSTHODONTICS The 36-month postdoctoral program combines clinical experience with didactic instruction leading to a Certificate in Prosthodontics. Students may also elect a course of study leading to a master’s degree program. The certificate program satisfies the formal training requirements for eligibility for the American Board of Prosthodontics examination, and students are encouraged to pursue board certification. The program is fully accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation. The didactic portion of the program includes a core curriculum designed to provide all postdoctoral students with a basic interdisciplinary education and a prosthodontics curriculum based on the review of classic and current dental literature, interdisciplinary seminars, and treatment planning presentations. The program also includes research, teaching, and continuing education courses by visiting faculty members.
