   1- Overall aims of course:
   The course of Prosthodontic Treatment For Completely Edentulous Patients introduces the
   student to the principles of clinical removable prosthodontic treatment for completely edentulous
   patients. The course stresses on how mechanical and biological factors are equally important for
   success of complete dentures. The course of Removable Partial Denture Treatment handles the
   basic clinical principles of managing patients with partial edentulism and stresses on the clinical as
   well as the laboratory steps required to fabricate and maintain removable partial dentures.

   By the end of that course, the student should be able to:
   a1- discuss steps for diagnosis and treatment planning for completely and partially edentulous
   a2- discuss impression procedures for maxillary and mandibular denture bearing areas as well as
   for removable partial denture
   a3- discuss biological and clinical considerations in making jaw relation records
   a4- identify factors affecting complete and partial denture esthetics and speech
   a5- discuss concepts for complete and partial denture occlusion
   a6- enumerate the different steps managed in complete denture and removable partial denture
   a7- identify procedures and conditions for serviceability of complete denture
   a8- discuss the steps of mouth preparation prior to removable partial denture fabrication
   a9- discuss the principles of removable partial denture design
   a10- discuss methods of registering the maxillomandibular relations
   a11- discuss the types and indications for refitting of removable partial denture
   a12- discuss the types and indications of removable partial dentures

   b- Intellectual skills:
   By the end of the course, student should be able to:
   b1- correlate clinical findings with the treatment planning suggested to fabricate successful
   complete and partial dentures

   c- Professional and practical skills:
   By the end of this course, the student should be able to:
   c1- perform the procedures required for fabrication of a complete and a removable partial denture

   d- General and transferable skills:
   By the end of this course, the student should be able to:
   d1- propose a treatment plan based on clinical findings and on the patient’s condition
