Located in the middle of the Great Forest, the University of Debrecen is a prestigious university in one of the largest cities in Hungary with a higher education history dating back to the 16th Century. Today the Medical and Health Science Centre has over 6000 students and 330 highly skilled lecturers.
Studying dentistry at Debrecen is an inspiring choice for UK and international students who wish to develop not only their professional skills but also their cultural awareness in Eastern Europe.
During the 1st year of this carefully structured programme, students gain an understanding of the basic medical sciences. In the second year the program broadens to encompass Anatomy, Histology, Physiology and Behavioural Sciences.
In the third pre-clinical year students learn the principles of patient treatment. During practical seminars in the Phantom Head laboratory they will learn about cavity preparation as well as fixed and removable prosthetics.
In the 4th year, students begin to treat patients in the Clinical Practice Unit. They are introduced to all clinical dental fields (Restorative Dentistry, Prosthetic Dentistry, Periodontology, Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Paedodontics and Orthodontics). During the final two years students take responsibility for treating their own patients in small-group practice classes under the close supervision of staff members.
Students spend the majority of the 5th year writing their thesis and taking their final examination. Following successful completion of the degree they are awarded with a D.M.D degree.
