In the first academic year, students will come into contact with basic sciences subjects that are fundamental to the training of all healthcare professionals. Our methodology is unique, with each subject completely integrated to the rest of the curriculum. Students will also be introduced to dental specialties through the Introduction to the Dental Clinic, where they will begin pre-clinical training.

In the second academic year, you will acquire knowledge in medical pathologies and study purely dental subjects, such as biomaterials, where you will learn the main materials and their use in the profession. In addition, during Diagnosis in Dentistry, you will learn the different radiological techniques and their application, and study Occlusion and Periodontics.

In the third academic year, you will acquire all the competencies of the different dental specialties, working in pre-clinical practices, advanced simulation environments and using virtual reality simulation and haptic technology. Learning in these settings will empower students to experience clinical training and real patient care.

In the fourth academic year, you will continue your theoretical training in the different areas of dentistry and will continue your clinical training by performing 300 practice hours on real patients. You will be supervised at all times by your professor to ensure the correct clinical care of patients.

In the fifth academic year, you will perform 600 clinical hours on real patients, carrying out all kinds of dental treatments. In this year, you will also carry out your final project, where you will apply and develop the training you have received to generate a personal project under supervision.

Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.

In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and to register the subject before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.
