Dentistry: The study of dentistry at the Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia takes 5 years, during which you will acquire a total of 300 ECTS credits. The course is taught in English and is completed with the degree Grado en Odontología. The University focuses on the individual support of each student. For this reason, teaching at UCAM takes place in small groups. The lecturers at UCAM consider personal contact with students in a university context to be essential. Each student is assigned a tutor who intensively supervises them as a mentor during their studies. This ensures a first-class and interactive education. UCAM owns a virtual dissecting table – one of the most advanced medical tools in the world. The use of this latest technology in teaching helps medical students to discover and learn the anatomy of the human body in a realistic and reliable way. UCAM’s dentistry program also offers a variety of exciting additional subjects that are not available at other universities in this form.
