Master of Science in Periodontology (M.Sc.)
Master program at RWTH Aachen University
In cooperation with the Medical Faculty of RWTH Aachen University and the Clinic for Operative Dentistry, Periodontology and Preventive Dentistry of the University Hospital Aachen, RWTH International Academy offers the postgraduate master program M.Sc. Periodontology. Scientific director of the program is Univ.-Prof. Dr. med. dent. Andreas Braun, Director of the Clinic for Operative Dentistry, Periodontology and Preventive Dentistry of the University Hospital Aachen.
The course offers dentists the opportunity to become highly qualified specialists in the area of periodontology.
A Blended-learning concept, which incorporates digital teaching & learning with short attendance blocks, enables participants to receive the highest level of academic and practical training whilst limiting time away from home & work.
The master program includes 8 modules over one year. Each module includes live online-seminars and two days of hands-on training & lectures in Aachen, Germany. The attendance days are organised in blocks. In order to optimally integrate this master’s degree into your work routine, each module is supported by digital teaching and learning content that can be accessed at flexible times. The last semester is dedicated to the preparation and compilation of a master thesis on a periodontal disease related topic & a clinical case review.
Periodontal therapy should be planned and performed systematically because of its many approaches. In Aachen, we have developed the Aachen Periodontal Treatment Concept (APTC) based on international recommendations. The APTC serves as the basis for an individual concept that each participant can implement considering his or her individual practice conditions. The basis is a diagnosis based on the current classification of periodontal diseases, which then determines the therapy sections “initial therapy”, “non-surgical therapy”, “surgical therapy” and “supportive therapy”.
City of Aachen
“Dreiländereck”, beauty & history
Situated in the tri-border region of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, Aachen enchants visitors with its monuments, squares and winding alleys. But not only the location in the tri-border region or the beautiful old town make the westernmost city in Germany so special.
In Aachen, more than 2,000 years of history meet 60,000 students. That’s why the city is also best known for Aachen Cathedral, Germany’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the large number of young people.
Relevance of the University Hospital
