Got the written confirmation from the exams department (RCS Edinburgh) this week so nice to have a hard copy of the results in my hand!! Many thanks for your guidance over the last year or so. The UIYC was set at a perfect level with just the right amount of content to get you through the diploma.
The print outs will be really useful as I wanted to go over the lectures again and start making notes and memorising the information.
The flexibility of doing the theory on-line has been fantastic. Far more convenient and cost effective than other courses. And it's useful to be able to revisit a lecture. Having patients provided and having a relatively local mentor has also been a big advantage over many other courses.
Amazing! This is a very useful resource.
I really enjoyed being able to complete the course at my own pace but with you in the background giving the occasional nudge so you dont loose focus. Obviously this also makes it very cost effective as there was much less time off work than on other courses. The supply of papers / reading material although daunting at first was excellent and actually essential for the diploma.
The UIYC is a very informative course especially for me who had a limited exposure to implant dentistry. It has certainly improved my knowledge in this domain with its very well structured online theoretical modules coupled with the improvement of my surgical skills via the monthly hands-on practical sessions. I managed to place a number of implants in the space of ten months. The good aspects of this course are that it provides you with patients to work with and it fits around your work schedule. Wished I found this course a few years earlier!
Ken Nicholson was my tutor for the certificate year in implant dentistry from the University of Warwick. He was one of the best lecturers I have had in my under and postgraduate training. He is methodical and clear in his delivery. Above all he is open to the viewpoints of others and most helpful in directing a student to further knowledge.
I thought that the intro to the UIYC was brilliant. We were given the perfect amount of information on this fascinating subject and this has given me a great insight into implant dentistry. It has also made me very keen to learn more and place my first implant. The smiletube site is an amazing resource and I appreciate the hard work you must have put into it.
