Oral Presentation Comprehensive presentation (covering the whole topic)
Questions management and discussion
Comprehensive literature review
The date To be announced
Each student has to submit a written comprehensive literature review in the topic assigned randomly to the students. The format of Journal of Endodontics has to be followed.
By the fifth week all students should submit a draft of the assigned topic and the final copy should be submitted seventh week.
The literature review should cover all the available evidence including recent studies.
Each student has to give an oral presentation about the assigned topic, the presentation should be summary not a replica of the written assignment.
Provide a comprehensive information about variable clinical and theoretical topics in endodontics based on the best available evidence in the current literature
Understand the concept of evidence-based dentistry
Know the hierarchy of the available evidence
Know how to write a comprehensive literature review
Know how to do an oral presentation
Understand each topic reviewed in this course
Upon the completion of this course the students should:

Teaching and Learning methods
Each lecture will include two parts: first hour a student presents the assigned topic according to the time table. The second hour all students are expected to discuss the related current literature given to them one week before.
Class lectures, homework assignments, handouts and presentations are designed to achieve the course objectives
You should read the assigned materials before class, complete assignments on time, and participate in class
The students are responsible of the material covered during the course
Any difficulty or concern during the course should be passed to the course coordinator
They are likely to be (but Not always) in the form of MCQs, short essay questions
It is applicable when an acceptable and valid excuse is presented at the applicable time
Last date to drop the course is before the (12 th) week of the current semester
It is unethical and illegal by any means
JUST regulations will be applicable
The work should be your own, otherwise it will scored zero
It is mandatory for all lectures
JUST regulations will be applied when you exceed 10% of an excused absence
The average work is about 2 hours /student
Exam papers will be graded and returned to students not after the week after the exam date. The answers will be discussed in the class
All students are highly encouraged to participate in the classes
Each student is expected to submit a hard copy of the assigned topic (as a paper ready for publication by JOE)
Each student is expected to do oral presentation of the assigned topic
at the date on the syllabus
All Students are highly encouraged to finish all the requirements of this course in due time
Being a positive party during this course will be helpful
Never be shy to participate during this course
