Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
With this unit, it is intended that students consolidate the knowledge of Removable Prosthodontics, acquired in the discipline of Prosthodontics I and at the same time, new knowledge to use in their clinical practice learning must be acquired. The aims of this course is to allow the students to do in clinical practice, removable partial dentures (RPD) and Complete Dentures (CD), through the acquisition of knowledge for the Diagnosis and Treatment Plan for a Removable Rehabilitation, as well as, interpret and apply the clinical care protocols.

Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The syllabus of the course related to oral rehabilitation with removable prosthesis, aims to allow the student to develop rehabilitation treatments in patients, starting with clinical cases of low complexity and simultaneously the theoretical acquisition of new knowledge, with the intent of solve more complex situations of complete or even partial edentulous patients. These cases related to anatomical particularities of the oral cavity or even the development of syndromes lead to changes in clinical care protocols in an attempt to rehabilitate extreme situations.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Lectures (T), supplemented by laboratory practice (PL) in preclinical/clinical context and supported by tutorial teaching (OT) and other activities (O) including the discussion of clinical situations.
The evaluation of this unit results from 50% of theoretical and 50% of the laboratory practical component (clinic).
The minimum approval rating is 10 values in each of the defined components
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The lectures (T) are aimed for the acquisition of knowledge, by students related to particular clinical situations and of higher complexity. Simultaneously, are aimed to consolidate the previously acquired knowledge, which allows the resolution of clinical situations in clinical patient care (PL). Typologies (O) and (OT) contemplated laboratory work and discussion of clinical cases to be performed by students.
