Course Objectives

The Clinical Residency in Periodontics programme aims to train dentists to develop a broad theoretical and practical knowledge that will allow them to improve the diagnosis and complete treatment of pathologies associated with periodontics. 

The programme will consist of theoretical classes in clinical periodontics and clinical seminars, which include joint cases with other dental specialities, practical workshops and clinical practice. This eminently practical programme focuses on clinical practice, which includes treating periodontal patients and offering surgical treatments to control periodontal diseases. 


Introduction to the course

This program is designed to train professional dentists who want to broaden their theoretical and practical/clinical knowledge in the field of Periodontics.

This course is mainly practical in nature, and allows for interaction with other dental specialities.

The teaching activity in this postgraduate course is made up of:

  • Theory sessions.
  • Practical pre-clinical sessions (lab sessions and practical seminars).

Reserving a place

  1. People who have been accepted on the pertinent postgraduate programme will receive an admission letter subject to the payment of a sum of money to reserve their place (approximately 20% of the total cost of the programme).
  2. The reservation of a place is confirmed by making the payment within the time limit established in the admission communication.
  3. Once the reservation of a place is completed in the aforementioned manner, if someone does not fulfil – according to state or regional laws applicable at any given moment – the requirements for admission to the course, does not hold the required qualifications or the course does not go ahead through lack of registrations, UIC Barcelona will give a full refund of the amount paid to reserve the place.
  4. If students, of their own free will, renounce their place on the course for any reason, UIC Barcelona will keep the entire amount paid as compensation for the damages caused, with no obligation to repay the amount received in respect of reserving a place.
  5. If students do not confirm the reservation of their place, it will be interpreted as renouncing the place which will entitle UIC Barcelona, at that moment, to render the application null and void.
  6. Students must pay the total amount of the enrolment fees within the deadlines set by UIC Barcelona. By not doing so, once having been accepted, this will be interpreted as renouncing their place, in line with what is established in the foregoing points 4 and 5.
  7. If students have paid the full enrolment amount and then renounce their place, the following conditions will apply:
    1. If they do it before the start of the academic year they will have the right to reclaim a refund of 80% of the total amount paid, only if the vacant can be replaced by another student.

    2. In any case the amount will be refund if the student rejects to the place once  the course started.


Once official registration has been completed, students must pay any and all outstanding fees, as a single payment, within 10 working days.
