PAIN5025: Orofacial Pain in Practice

Clinical learning experiences/activities provide students the opportunity to synthesis and integrate their learning. The practical application of the knowledge gained from previous units allows students the opportunity to draw conclusions that will form the basis for further investigation, and intellectual and/or professional growth.
