Fit for the future
New digital technologies and a higher degree of virtualisation require new student-centred teaching and learning concepts, content and organisational forms that can be optimally mapped and realised in international networks.
The "University for Digital Technologies in Medicine and Dentistry, Luxembourg" (DTMD University Luxembourg) is not a traditional medical university with a primary physical location for its courses and research projects. Instead, DTMD University is an international network of highly qualified professors and lecturers from European universities and university clinics, university institutes, academic teaching practices and international professional societies.
Short innovation cycles as well as rapid technological developments in medicine and its accompanying disciplines demand an extra-occupational updating of knowledge and a continuous expansion of the professional competence of all protagonists in health care. First and foremost, of course, the physicians and medical-technical specialists are addressed.
The postgraduate courses at DTMD University follow the principle of Life Long Learning. The DTMD Master's programmes are designed to meet the needs of working people who wish to receive further professional training. The focus is on combining scientific expertise from national and international lecturers with practical training at university level. Cooperations with other universities, specialized practices and educational institutions guarantee a postgraduate education at the highest level.
The aim of DTMD University is not to draw physicians into the role of medical informatics specialists, but to impart competencies in the field of data literacy or data competence from the perspective of a physician working in a clinic or practice. This refers to the knowledge and ability to handle medically relevant data properly, to interpret it and to explain the results to the patient.
About the course
The world is becoming digital, our lives are becoming digital: in order to take account of this development, the Luxembourg University not only consciously bears the term digitisation in its name, but fills it with life every day in theory and practice. Digitalization has so far received little or no attention in the basic dental subjects as well as in orthodontics. In the meantime, however, digitization has also arrived in orthodontics. And it will fundamentally change both orthodontics and dentistry as a whole. Digital methods and tools promise a faster and safer correction of tooth misalignments and a large part of the therapy is possible without the physical presence of the patient.
Especially in diagnostics and sustainable therapy planning from the first admission to the end of treatment, digitization is expanding to more and more areas of orthodontics and is well on the way to systematically covering the entire workflow.
In addition to current developments in orthodontics, the Master's program also specifically includes periodontal therapy, functional therapy, preprosthetic and aesthetic treatment of adults.
With increasing digitalization and automated workflows, orthodontics is developing into a treatment method for (almost) every age and thus represents an important extension of the treatment spectrum for daily practice.
DTMD has set itself the goal of offering dentists the prospect of updating and significantly expanding their specialist expertise through a part-time postgraduate course of study with an academic degree as a "Master of Science". Today, orthodontics must be offered in its various indications in every dental practice.
The students are introduced step by step in theory and practice to the "practical" orthodontics and can immediately put what they have learned into practice.
The offer is aimed at licensed dentists. Proof of at least one year of professional experience in dentistry in contact with patients is required.
Duration of study
The course lasts 24 months, including the preparation of a Master's thesis.
The entire course comprises 14 modules, 10 classroom modules and 4 e-learning modules. The classroom modules take place on weekends from Friday to Sunday. Hospitations and supervisions are optional and can take place in the academic, highly qualified practices of the DTMD University by arrangement. Case presentations take place as part of the final examination and in a classroom module.
During their studies, students write their Master's thesis. The topics are proposed to the students. The student's own topics can be discussed with the supervising lecturer. The Master's thesis is presented and defended during the final oral examination.
Your investment in the future amounts to 7,450.00 euros per semester (total 29,800.00 euros).
