Time: Place: Duration: Credit:3
This seminar provides exposure to historically relevant, scientific literature in various subject areas associated with prosthodontics and related sciences. Periodic and critical abstracting of this literature is accomplished by seminar attendees in order to maintain a database of condensed, topic-oriented summaries. Students in the Advanced Prosthodontic Program participate in this seminar each semester of their three-year residency. Twenty-four broad topics pertinent to prosthodontics are covered on a rotational basis over a three-year period. Eight topics are covered during each year of the students’ three-year residency program. Seminars are led by the Assistant Director of the Advanced Prosthodontic Program. Other members of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center faculty are invited to participate when their expertise on the seminar topic is considered beneficial to the learning experience.

PPRO 811 Contemporary Evidence-Based Prosthodontic Journal Club Dave Cagna
Start date:2017-08-14End date:2017-12-15
Time: Place: Duration: Credit:2
Ongoing review of current, pertinent, professional literature is fundamental to the successful practice of prosthodontics. For postdoctoral students, knowledge of current professional literature is essential to developing theoretical and practical patient management skills. The assessment of current literature for its evidence-based value is critical. Journal Club provides a mechanism for surveying major dental periodicals to identify important articles, reviewing those articles, and discussing each article in an open seminar format. Twice weekly, one-hour seminars are conducted throughout the three-year program. This schedule is necessary to stay abreast of the ever-expanding volume of prosthodontic literature.
