B Objectives



1. Summary of the main learning outcomes for students enrolled in the course.

The aim of this course is to facilitate identification of all oral diseases by understanding the disease processes. This course is designed to expose the students to the current concepts of oral and maxillofacial pathology. When the student successfully completes the course, he/she should be able to differentiate between normal and pathological changes of the tissues of oral cavity; moreover, they should know the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical and microscopic features of all oral lesions except oral oncology which will be discussed in oral pathology II course.




2. Briefly describe any plans for developing and improving the course that are being implemented. (eg increased use of IT or web based reference material, changes in content as a result of new research in the field)

- To increase self-learning, all students should search in PubMed for up to date articles related to topic they study in the course and they have to present and discuss it at the end of the course.

- To encourage continuous study, there will be a weekly assessment of the student.

- It is recommended to use the IT lab with digital slides.

- To enhance students’ learning abilities in analysing data, clinical case-based discussions will be performed by students’ groups every 5 weeks.
