PG Programme

  • The academic activities involved are state of art presentations of case, discussions, seminars and journal discussions by every postgraduate student, which is considered for internal assessment.
  • Dissertations, which are partial fulfillment of the MDS universities examinations, are carried out by the Postgraduates under the supervision of their respective guides.

It is compulsory for all PG students to present a poster/paper at the Indian orthodontic society conference held annually. They are required to attend seminars, symposiums and continuing orthodontic education programs and workshops.
