The aim of the online refresher course for oral pathology is to enable the participants to identify, diagnose and manage the most frequent disorders that may appear in the oral cavity.
The aim of the course is to provide students with the learning tools needed to diagnose and treat both lesions to the oral mucosa as well as bone and glandular damage; and also to acquire skills in taking biopsies of potentially malignant disorders of the oral mucosa from the general public and to familiarise themselves with the methods of diagnostic imaging and their interpretation.

- To differentiate between what is normal and pathological.
- To detect the existence of disease.
