About the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery programme

e-Face is an online resource for oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS).

It has been developed by The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

e-Face is designed to support OMFS specialty trainees and our colleagues in Oral Surgery training programmes.

The e-learning is also suitable for consultant/specialist surgeons and oral surgeons as part of their continuing professional development.

The sessions feature case studies, animation, video and interactive exercises and are available to access wherever there is an internet connection.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Programme structure

The e-Face project will be structured into 16 modules, covering the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Project (ISCP) in OMFS and oral surgery. It will be delivered as a blended learning solution to support existing local and regional training. Each of the sessions will include self assessment with feedback to reinforce learning.

Areas covered in e-Face will include:

  • Craniomaxillofacial trauma
  • Head and neck oncology
  • Reconstruction
  • Diseases of the salivary glands
  • Facial deformity
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Aesthetic facial surgery
  • Facial pain
  • Disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
  • Oral surgery
  • Pre-prosthetic surgery and implantology
  • Management of infections in the head and neck
  • Conditions of the oral mucosa
  • Surgical dermatology
  • Craniofacial surgery
  • Research and governance

There are a number of areas of overlap with other surgical projects currently being delivered by HEE e-Learning for Healthcare, in particular plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. These areas were identified early to avoid duplication of material and to ensure the content is applicable to all specialty trainees.
