About this course


Course option

12weeks

Part-time | 2019

This course is for those who have been recommended to study local anaesthesia by the GDC.

**What will I experience?**

The course will focus on the knowledge and skills required to deliver local anaesthetic safely to patients, whilst enabling you to reflect on working in a Primary care environment in the UK. It will involve clinical activity and the provision of care to patients within The Dental Academy and will, in addition, provide an understanding of NHS primary dental care in the UK.

Assessment methods

The course and learning undertaken aims to demonstrate students’ achievement of learning outcomes and their development of scholarly and clinical skills, including knowledge transfer and evidence based inquiry. Consequently, coursework is varied and includes portfolio and exam.

Assessment consists of an unseen written exam and completion of a logbook will detail the successful completion of the relevant GDC identified competences.
