Evaluation systems and criteria
Following the criterion that the MASTER'S END WORK is the compendium of all the training received during the two years of the master's program, the Scientific Commission of the Faculty of Dentistry of the International University of Catalonia, made up of representatives from each area of the dental specialties and those responsible for the Faculty Center Board, to contribute to ensuring that this work has a scientific quality in accordance with the competencies that this teaching module requires, will value and must authorize the protocol of this research or clinical work before to carry it out. Once the study is completed and the report of the "Master's Final Project" has been drawn up, it will be reviewed by the same Scientific Commission. The review system for the "Master's Final Project" will focus on evaluating the scientific and methodological rigor of the work carried out, taking into account the communication skills that the student demonstrates.
Once evaluated by the Scientific Commission, the student is authorized to defend the Master's Final Project before a Court chosen by the Center Board at the proposal of the master's direction, made up of three doctors, one of whom must be a specialist. in the relevant study area.
