About Academic Masters and PhD Courses

The Master’s and Doctoral in Dentistry Programs at São Leopoldo Mandic are recognized by CAPES-MEC (Ministry of Education of Brazil). The programs aim to capacitate masters and doctoral alumni not only to do research but also to be able to locate, recognize, identify and, above all, use research to add value to their daily practice, especially in terms of planning and solving health issues at the local, regional and national levels. In addition, postgraduate alumni are trained to act in a multiprofessional and interdisciplinary manner to promote health based on ethical scientific evidence and citizenship, as well as to play an active and relevant role in postgraduate courses and research groups elsewhere.


The programs are led by highly qualified professionals recognized both nationally and internationally, running their courses in laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment and an online interaction platform. In addition, the sharing of information and expertise is worked in lectures, tutorials and presentations by Brazilian and foreign experts in collaboration with national and international institutions.
