Curriculum of B.D.S. Scheme of Studies Details of Courses: Ist Professional B.D.S. Second Professional Third professional B.D.S. Final professional B.D.S. The Pakistan Medical & Dental Council is a statutory body constituted by the Federal Government under the Pakistan Medical & Dental Council Ordinance, 1962. Presently controlled by the Council. One of the main function of the Council is to lay down the minimum standard of basic and higher qualifications in Medicine & Dentistry. The Council has been empowered to: - To prescribe a uniform minimum standard of courses of training for obtaining graduate and postgraduate dental qualification. - To prescribe minimum requirements for the content and duration of courses of studies for the degree of BDS. - To prescribe condition for admission to courses of training for the - To prescribe the standards of examinations method of conducting the For this purpose senior teachers of all specialties were invited & draft curriculum was finalized after due consideration of the comments and suggestions received from the Universities and Colleges where the subject under consideration is taught. The Curriculum prepared by the Curriculum Revision Committee of Higher Education Commission was duly approved by Council & is being circulated for implementation by the concerned institutions on. This Curriculum is to be followed by all the Dental Colleges and Universities in Pakistan to get registration of the Council for Dental practitioners.
ADVISER (Academics/R&D)
A meeting of NCRC B.D.S. was held on 19.8.2003 to restructure the B.D.S. curriculum into four years from five years as decided in the Council Session held on 29th & 30th April 2003. The Committee considered the proposals of subjects specialists in various disciplines of Dentistry and discussed the following:- Nomenclature of various subjects Duration of BDS course Year-wise distribution of subjects Distribution of sub-specialties Examination system restructuring Internal assessment factors Allocation of credit hours First draft curriculum of various subjects taught in BDS. Books recommended Following recommendations were proposed unanimously:- Nomenclature of Oral Surgery should be changed to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Prosthetics should be called Prosthodontics Conservative Dentistry be called Operative Dentistry Dental Anatomy should be renamed as Oral Biology and Tooth Morphology Dental Chemistry should be called Science of Dental Materials It was also proposed that Periodontology, Gerodontology and Paedondontics are the best descriptive terms. YEAR WISE DISTRIBUTION OF SUBJECTS:
Histology and Embryology Physiology General Pathology Operative Dentistry Oral Biology and Tooth Morphology Maxillofacial Surgery Dental Materials Islamiat / Ethics It was felt that Oral Medicine and Periodontology should be independent subjects but till the availability of subject specialists they could be taught together. Those institutions where separate subject specialists are available with developed departments may teach and examine these subjects independently. ?? Where the department of Paediatric Dentistry with qualified staff is available there will be a separate examination of the subject in final year BDS. Examination System
Examination System was restructured as following: - All papers should consist of MCQs and essay type question. Internal evaluation of each subject carries 10% marks of the total to be adjusted in practical marks. The question paper should be according to the table of specification provided in curriculum of that subject. SCHEME OF STUDIES
