Basic dentistry courses


The purpose of the ISI Training program is to establish a clinical pathway leading to a professional maturity suited to respond to today's needs. At the same time it creates a network of professionals linked to ISI that have ISI as a reference point and meeting place.
The program has three levels: theoretical training, clinical training at the chair and scientific training.
The theoretical training will take place at the ISI with a series of monothematic evenings.
In 2015 the topic is: The Treatment Plan , as you see, the speakers are all of high international level.
The clinical training at the chair is definitely for the student the central and subjectively dominant part of the whole process proposed. In order to be able to better address this part so as to obtain a double satisfaction, both by the Institute and by the candidate, there are certain rules of conduct that must be followed scrupulously. The student must be invested with the responsibility that comes from the fact of having to manage, in accordance with their own Tutor, the patient who is the true wealth of the ISI. This must always be present as a central pillar in the behaviour with the patient. It is therefore obvious that the highest respect for punctuality, a proper relationship with the Tutor and with superior officers, lack of truancy are the basis of a fruitful common professional coexistence. Still for organizational needs and to optimize the pathway, admissions in the Departments should be guaranteed for a minimum of 18 hours per week. The assigned shifts will be immutable for the first year of attendance. This should not be regarded as a restriction of the Student's freedom, but as a help to enter in an organized and well-structured circuit. The student will learn to make the correct diagnosis and to set and implement the treatment plan, with increasing difficulties.
The scientific training is an added value that we want to give our Students. This process will consist of a period of three years and must be defined in close collaboration between the Scientific Director and the Health Department. At the end of the first year the Student and their Tutor will present a case report in the context of an internal ISI event organized specifically. These presentations will allow Students to prepare to present their diagnosis and treatment plans before a friendly but critical audience. The student will therefore also learn an extraclinical activity, which is the presentation and discussion of their work. This gives them security in their work. For the ISI the added value lies in the ability to have a snapshot of the clinical activities of its Department. During the second year the Student will follow a work of literature review on a topic chosen in agreement with the above named Departments. This review will lead to the Student's ability to compare their learning with the encoded states of the art, while for the ISI it represents the ability to control their quality compared to what is offered on the market. At the end of the third year the Student will have prepared at least one scientific paper that testifies to its presence in the ISI. The Student will then have a tangible demonstration of their maturation while the ISI can assert its leading role in the training of competent and up to date professionals.
