TandDyreklinikken Level of Excellence in Veterinary Oral Surgery (TDK-LEVOS)
This programme is for veterinary dentists with a wish to improve their skills in advanced dentistry and oral and maxillofacial surgery. It is furthermore a skill-programme for veterinary surgeons, in procedures involving jaws and teeth.
The programme is developed as a graduate studies of the TandDyreklinikken Level of Excellence in Veterinary Dentistry (LEVD). The programme combines didactic teaching of basic theory, tutorials and practical training sessions and has a maximum number of eight participants per class. This provides participants with a more intensive learning environment, and the practical sessions are well equipped, which reduces waiting time for both help from tutor and equipment.
Course Master is Jens Ruhnau (DVM, Specialdyrlæge i veterinær odontologi, EBVS European Veterinary Specialist in Dentistry, Dipl.EVDC). Other co-teachers may be invited for selected topics – if this is the case, it will always be at Diplomate specialist level.
The programme consists of three modules and an exam, 10 days in total. The teaching modules are supported by two assignments to be produced by the participants between the modules. A certain number of hours for “homework and studying” is expected from participants.
Obligatory tutorials must all be approved, before participants can sit for and pass the exam.
