The programme is now available to dentists from India who can apply for the course without having to relocate. The programme includes a two-week excursion to Dundee in Scotland to learn face-to-face. Interested and eligible candidates can apply till July 15.
The programme is for dentists who are interested in dental and legal fields and it follows an interdisciplinary approach based on forensic and legal odontology.
The online programme will cover latest techniques to examine and analyse dental evidence along with the ethical and legal implications of such evidence. The course offers career opportunities in police force assistance, legal profession and private practice.
Commenting on this, Hemlata Pandey, lecturer in forensic odontology said, “It gives clinical dentists or full-time academicians an opportunity to pursue their passion for forensic odontology without having to take a break from their full-time work for a long period.”
“Qualified Forensic Odontologists have gone on to become consultants for private disaster response agencies, insurance companies, law firms and humanitarian organizations. They can work in different environments such as human identification, age estimation, dental malpractice and negligence, humanitarian forensics, assisting autopsy surgeons and more, depending on their area of interest,” she added.
