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.






The Goal

Provide a comprehensive information about variable clinical and theoretical topics in endodontics based on the best available evidence in the current literature
