English abstract
Aim To describe the specialist training at the Faculty of Odontology in Malmö for eight specialities that are certified in Sweden and report the results of a questionnaire among former specialist trainees. Material and Method The objectives of the specialist training are set on three levels: the national level according to the Swedish National Board for Health and Welfare, the faculty level, the so called Malmö model, and finally the specialist subject level. The specialist training in Malmö is implemented in collaboration with the Public Dental Health Care in southern Sweden. The Postgraduate Education Board of the faculty scrutinizes and approves each trainee’s individualized specialist training programme. The clinical part of the training is to be shared between the collaborating units and the theoretical part is the prime responsibility of the faculty. During the three-year-programme, seven core courses are held for all trainees irrespective of specialist subject parallel to the clinical training. Every semester there are two joint seminars: one seminar on a current odontological theme and one on the following subjects; epidemiology, ethics, migration and ethnic relations, environment, gender, leadership. A written and oral programme evaluation is performed yearly by the Chair of the Postgraduate Education Board together with a representative of the Public Dental Health Care. As part of the 2003 evaluation a questionnaire was sent to 31 specialist graduates trained between 2000 and 2003. Twenty-four specialists responded, 13 graduates from Malmö and 11 from other Swedish specialist institutions. Results and Conclusion A majority of the 24 responding graduates express that the work as specialists suit them very well and that the education well serve the purpose to work as a specialist. A majority of the graduates from Malmö were positive to the joint courses during their training. Some thought that there should be more joint activities among trainees of different subject specialities.
