ENDO 302A - Endodontics Clinic I

Cr Hrs: 0.5 (0-0-20)

This course aims for students to attain minimal competency in performing clinical endodontics under the supervision of endodontists and group leaders. Student doctors are expected to critically interpret diagnostic information from a multitude of specialties and formulate a strategic treatment plan using all available best evidence. Management of the emergency patient, concurrent with rotations through ER, and problems arising from inter-appointment flare-ups are taught as they arise. Contemporary endodontic techniques are used to deliver patient care, with emphasis on restoring the tooth to function. Simulation exercises involving complete endodontic treatment are required every 90 days in the absence of any endodontic treatment. Assessment is by daily grade using a rubric with 8 domains and 3 sub-domains that include preparedness and knowledge of the case being treated, professional conduct and radiographic skills. Minimal experience levels are required for successful completion of this course.
