Luxemburg/Nürnberg, 4 April 2020
The Accreditation Commission of the DTMD University for Digital Technologies in Medicine and Dentistry has accredited the IFZ-International Training Center for Dental Implantology, Nuremberg, as an affiliated institute at the DTMD University (IFZI-DTMD A.s.b.l.) in its meeting of March 27, 2020.
Prof. Dr. André Reuter, President of the DTMD University, emphasized after the meeting of the commission: "I am particularly pleased that the DTMD University has succeeded in winning the IFZI in Nuremberg with Prof. Dr. Ingo Voges (Hamburg) as head of the new institute. Ingo Voges has absolutely comprehensive theoretical and above all practical competence and experience in oral implantology, in which he has been working since 1995 as one of the few dentists in Germany and above all internationally". For the DTMD University and its extra-occupational postgraduate courses, Prof. Voges' commitment to international trainer training as well as to consulting services for dental practices, especially in Eastern Europe, are important components of its internationalisation strategy.
Aim and task of the IFZI-DTMD is the promotion and further development of the extra-occupational postgraduate education in implantology based on the current international state of research and teaching. For this purpose the IFZI-DTMD provides a powerful scientific platform for the bundling of information, competence and knowledge in the field of dental implantology. The IFZI activities in teaching and research focus on the conception and development of modern training and further education measures and programs for the promotion and use of implantological treatment procedures in the health care system.
Prof. Dr. Ingo Voges comments: "Despite innovative new technologies and increasing digitalization and virtualization, modern dentistry remains in many respects a craft activity. This makes it all the more important to offer students and dentists who have been practicing for years comprehensive, realistic practical training opportunities in order to continuously maintain their skills and competencies at a very high level". This is precisely the aim of the International Training Centre for Dental Implantology, which is based in Wiltz Castle and has ultra-modern training and education facilities and phantom rooms in its own IFZI training centre in Nuremberg.
Voges continues: "Our modular training concept is highly practical, is offered as a curriculum and gives every course participant and student the security of a high-quality and innovative implantological independence.
