About the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery programme

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgerye-FACE is an online resource for oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS). It has been developed by the British Association for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare.

e-FACE is designed to support junior trainees working in OMFS departments. The content is partially aligned to the Dental Core Training (DCT) Curriculum and is designed to complement the first year of DCT. The content is also suitable for all junior trainees working in OMFS departments and as refresher material for those starting their specialty training.

The sessions feature interactive learning, videos and case studies and all contribute towards Continued Professional Development. The formats vary from ‘bite size’ sessions to longer more in depth reviews of topics. They are available to access wherever there is an internet connection and are fully compatible with mobile devices.

More information

The e-FACE project is structured into the following modules, covering the majority of the Dental Core Training Curriculum. It is delivered as a blended learning solution to support existing local and regional training. Each of the sessions includes self-assessment with feedback to reinforce learning.
