Teaching Methods and Extent of Organized Teaching

Teaching in the KOS block is interdisciplinary, integrated and case and problem-oriented. Teaching takes the form of lectures/seminars with one or more academic teachers/clinical specialists present, at which interdisciplinary discussion is encouraged in order to activate the students. All learning material is available on the faculty intranet (the KOS block home page and/or the student portal). Teaching extends over 4 semesters (fourth and fifth year of studies). The students in each year are divided into 4 groups, and each group is assigned one or more thematic assignments in each course. The assignments usually include both a clinical description and follow-up with relevant examinations (X-ray, microscopic image of biopsy, microbiology). The student will make a diagnosis and suggest treatment based on this information. To conclude a topic, each group presents their solution of one assignment in a plenary meeting at which the rest of the class and the subject teachers have an opportunity to comment on their presentation. The group's final answer is based on the plenary discussion and feedback from subject teachers. The teacher responsible for the topic will post the answers to the assignments on the home page of the KOS block after they have been approved and commented upon.

Clinical teaching is described under the course description for the subject area Oral surgery and oral medicine.
