An ITI spokesperson explained: “The ITI (International Team for Implantology) has launched its first credentialing programmeme, the ITI Diploma in Implant Dentistry, a further building block in its broad programmeme to support life-long learning for professionals in the field.
“The ITI Diploma is a structured programmeme for experienced professionals who would like to validate their proficiency in implant dentistry. It takes participants through a process based on eight clinical case submissions and an oral examination. Awarded by the ITI, an internationally recognised leader in evidence-based implant dentistry education, the ITI Diploma testifies to the holder’s professional competence.
“In line with the organisation’s reputation for scientific rigour combined with concern for the welfare of patients, the ITI Diploma process is challenging. It therefore also represents an opportunity to demonstrate an internationally recognised level of competence in implant-related treatment.
“The programme centres on the skills of the clinician in combination with evidence-based treatment protocols towards predictable, long-term stable outcomes.”
Merete Aaboe, Chair of the ITI Board of Studies, takes up the thread: “The ITI Diploma in Implant Dentistry fits in ideally with the ITI’s purpose to engage and inspire the global dental profession to strive for excellence in implant dentistry.
“It perfectly complements the ITI Curriculum at foundation and intermediate level along with the ITI’s broad offering that all aim to cover the education needs of professionals from beginner to expert.”
The programme is open to professionals with at least three years’ experience of placing and/or restoring implants who are able to document clinical cases. An entry exam is required for all candidates who do not hold the ITI Curriculum Intermediate level certificate. A short pre-test on the ITI website provides an idea of the kind of questions asked in the entry exam.
Registration is now open, and the programme will officially kick off at the beginning of September 2022.
