History

The Department of Oral Pathology was established on March 1st, 1993. The goal of the lecture for junior undergraduate students is the systemic and scientific understanding of the disease occurring head and neck regions. For this purpose, the department provide the lecture program of general pathology, oral and maxillofacial pathology together with laboratory class of microscopic examination of the diseases. The objective of lecture for senior students is the clinical application of scientific basis of the disease especially focused on the oral and maxillofacial region. Currently, oral pathology educates the second year students as an interdisciplinary course, which is called the diseases of oral and maxillofacial regions. Clinical pathology facilitates the third year students so that they can apply their pathologic knowledge to clinical situations by problem based learning. Ten tutors are working for this course. The graduate program is closely related to the research field of interest covering the area of carcinogenesis and prevention of oral precancerous lesions and progression of oral cancer, salivary gland tumors, and other diseases of oral and maxillofacial region. Clinico-pathologic conference is also an important part of this educational program for senior students and residents who work at the clinics of oral pathology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral medicine and radiology.

The clinic of diagnostic oral pathology was launched in dental hospital on March 2006.
