[1-2 Credits]
The purpose of this course is to review the current literature for articles pertaining to endodontics. The articles reviewed are evaluated for placement in the Endodontic Literature Review. This allows the student to consider new ideas or information in relationship to classical and current endodontic philosophy. Updating the literature review course is extremely important if one is to keep up with the latest changes in endodontics. The process of reviewing and abstracting the current articles serves as a means of using the skills gained during literature review for comparing and analyzing recent work. There are 14 sessions, each 3 and 1/2 hours. During each session, each article reviewed will be evaluated for the following characteristics: 1) experimental design, materials and methods, and statistical evaluation; 2) reliability and validity of results; 3) relationship of results and conclusion; and 4) value to the literature topic, especially compared to articles already included in respective Literature Review Session.
