Birmingham School of Dentistry, UK



Course 1 Manikin Course - "Operative Skills" 

Course 2 "OSCE, Treatment Planning and Medical Emergencies

Manikin Exercise Practice Day*( ONLY open to students who have prevoiusly attended the 3 day manikin course at Birmingham)

Please note: Further course dates will be published soon so check regularly!


Building on success of previous preparation courses for registration with the General Dental Council, Birmingham School of Dentistry has developed a two part course to prepare candidates for the ORE and LDS part 2 examination: 

These courses will prepare candidates for all sections of the ORE and LDS part 2 examination. The tutors leading the courses are experienced undergraduate and postgraduate teachers at the University of Birmingham with vast experience in teaching overseas dentists for IQE and ORE examinations. The courses will be held at Birmingham School of Dentistry in excellent facilities. Each day will be hard work with traditional and contemporary teaching methods being employed. Students wishing to participate can attend either or both courses.

Course 1 - Manikin Course - “Operative Skills” 

This practical course will run over three days with a pure focus to prepare candidates for the “manikin exercises” of the examination. The course will include; background to the theoretical knowledge required for the examination, live projected demonstrations and most importantly hands on practice. The emphasis of the course will be placed on candidate practice and tutor feedback with a maximum of a 6:1 student/teacher ratio.

 All exercises that are outlined in the GDC guidelines will be covered. Each day is long and hard running from 9am-6pm with only 30mins for lunch to maximize practice for each exercise and therefore equates to 25.5hrs CPD. The equipment and teeth used in the course are closely aligned to those which are used in the examination. The course will culminate in a "Mock Examination" on the final afternoon which has proved very popular. The tutors leading the course are experienced undergraduate and postgraduate teachers at the University of Birmingham and the Royal London Dental Hospital with vast experience in teaching overseas dentists for IQE and ORE examinations.

Manikin Exercise Practice Days
*For those students who have attended the 3-day manikin preparation course at University of Birmingham School of Dentistry additional practice days have been organised in our clinical skills laboratory.
The practice day will run from 9am-5pm and be supervised throughout by one of our experienced tutors. During the day, candidates will be supplied with instruments and materials to practice all exercises covered by the GDC guidelines for the manikin examination except impressions. A maximum of 15 frasaco teeth (including 2 for endodontic treatment) will be provided. Lunch will be provided between 1-1.30pm and a total of 7.5 hrs verifiable CPD will be achieved.
Please note this course will only be conducted if there are minimum of SIX candidates attending, therefore it could be cancelled at late notice.

Manikin courses will be held in the brand new state of the art Practical Skills Laboratory

Course 2 - “OSCE, Treatment Planning and Medical Emergencies"

This course will run over two days and consist of three parts which are outlined below. Again the days are long and hard running from 9am to 5.30pm with only 30mins for lunch which equates to 16hrs CPD.  Actors will be used in the OSCE and treatment planning section of the course.

OSCE Practice Participants will have the opportunity to practice on a number of OSCE workstations and have feedback on their performance. There will be general guidance on how to face this part of the examination.
Medical Emergencies The management of medical emergencies and a revision of cardiopulmonary resuscitation using current guidelines will be covered with relevant demonstrations and the opportunity to practice on the “Resusci Dummy”. This interactive session will also give guidance on how to tackle typical viva questions on medical emergencies.
Treatment Planning The process of assessing patients, formulating treatment plans and generating treatment options will be covered together. There will also be guidance on how to communicate the information effectively in a viva. All participants will have the opportunity to have “live viva practice” and individual feedback.
