ORALHLTH 3211BHO - Dental & Health Science IIIOH (Modified) Part 2

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 2 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

The course brings together material covered in the first two years in the Human Biology and Dental and Health Science courses, with an emphasis on clinical implications, to provide the students with a richer understanding of dental therapy and dental hygiene philosophies and practice. Additional topics related to oral health and disease at individual and population levels are also discussed. The course is closely integrated with Clinical Practice III OH(Mod) in which clinical experience will be gained, eg. in radiography, paedodontics and orthodontics. This course has also been designed to provide you with opportunities to learn about a range of interdisciplinary topics that will impact on your provision of care for your patients. You will learn about these topics through interactive seminar presentations and where appropriate, there will be discussion of relevant patient cases. Your learning from these seminars will be complemented by resources available on MyUni. You will need to participate in these sessions, reflecting on how the topics will influence your current and future clinical practice.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
