Careers in Oral Medicine
To Become a Specialist in Oral Medicine
To become a Specialist in Oral Medicine requires considerable training and clinical experience in Oral Medicine.
The ‘Specialty Training Curriculum for Oral Medicine’ approved by the General Dental Council in August 2010 provides more information for Specialty training in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. There are different routes into Specialty Training although all applicants must hold full registration with the relevant dental council in the United Kingdom or Ireland. The InterCollegiate Specialty Fellowship Examination (ISFE) needs to be passed before specialty training can be completed.
Other Involvement in Oral Medicine
There are opportunities for those who wish to be involved in Oral Medicine without undertaking specialty training. Some Dental Foundation and Career Development posts offer opportunities to work in Oral Medicine units. These opportunities are advertised via different routes, including NHS Jobs, NHS Scotland Recruitment, BDJ Jobs and Postgraduate Dental Deanery websites.
A list of current and recently advertised jobs may be of interest although BSOM cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.
