Upon successful completion, the participant will receive the Certificate: ”Competency in Dental Implantology” (CDI) issued by the German Council of Oral Surgery and Implantology (GCSI) in cooperation with International Medical College (IMC®).
The “CDI” certificate allows the delegate to enroll and get accepted in the Master of Science program for Implantology and Dental Surgery (Full time and Part-time) offered by the German University of Duisburg-Essen.

Model 2 :
GCSI works with a partner who is organizationally active in postgraduate education programs.
To enable as many delegates as possible who have already successfully completed a one year postgraduate science-based curriculum to gain benefits from the GCSI. GCSI has decided to recognize the already completed curricula in an internal equivalence test.

Since the delegates have already passed an exam successfully, only the following will be conducted:

1. Advanced lectures: 2 days seminar done by the GCSI teaching staff
2. Oral examination: 2 documented cases of different indications in the form of a Power Point Presentation according to the given GCSI guidelines.

Upon successful completion, the participant will receive the Certificate: ”Competency in Dental Implantology” (CDI) issued from the German Council of Oral Surgery and Implantology (GCSI) in cooperation with International Medical College (IMC®).
The “CDI” certificate allows the delegate to enroll and get accepted in the Master of Science program for Implantology and Dental Surgery (Full time and Part-time) offered by the German University of Duisburg-Essen.
