PROS 710 Prosthodontic Literature Seminar Gregory Paprocki
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 01/02/2013 Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 06/28/2013
Day : TBA Time : TBA Place : VA Conference Room
Credit: variable
This weekly 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 residency program. Seminars are led by the director of the Advanced Prosthodontic Program. Other members of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center faculty are invited to participate when their expertise with regard to the seminar topic is considered beneficial to the learning experience.
PROS 711 Contemporary Evidence-Based Journal Club David Cagna

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.
PROS 714 Biomechanics and Biomaterials Seminar Antheunis Versluis
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : Start of semester Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : End of semester
Day: TBA Time: TBA Place: TBA Credit: 2
The purpose of this course is to gain experience in the critical reading and evaluation of the biomaterials literature. Students will learn basic biomechanical and biomaterial concepts and research techniques, while practicing critical evaluations of the dental literature using selected publications relevant to dentistry and research methodology. After completion of this course, a student should be able to successfully evaluate scientific investigations of dental materials and translate this knowledge to their clinical training with the ultimate goal of improving patient treatment and care.
PROS 800 Thesis Gregory Paprocki
Starting date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 01/02/2013 Ending date (MM/dd/yyyy) : 06/28/2013
Day : TBA Time : TBA Place : Dunn
Credit: variable
This course provides opportunity for students to engage in research in prosthodontics and related sciences. Though involvement is arranged to suit individual needs, time commitment will be approximately 4 hours per week during each semester of the program. Students work with advisors experienced in research methodologies and scientific writing. Instruction is given by appropriate faculty on individual bases. Student activities include library research, writing a literature review, developing a research protocol, hands-on research, gathering and analyzing data, interpreting experimental results, developing conclusions, and publishing outcomes. Public defense of the research effort and publication of a thesis in accordance with regulations established by the College of Graduate Health Sciences are required. Research, public defense, and thesis accomplished during this course are in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Dental Science degree award by the UTHSC College of Graduate Health Sciences.
