Merthyr Tydfil DCT1 scheme

Programme of educational study based at Prince Charles Hospital, Merthyr Tydfil.

The Merthyr Dental Core Training (DCT) scheme is based at Prince Charles Hospital Merthyr Tydfil, within a few miles of the outstandingly beautiful Brecon Beacons, and approximately 20 miles from Cardiff. Access from Cardiff is easy with the route entirely dual carriageway.

The centre has a clinical skills room with phantom head facilities, and seminar rooms with IT facilities. Hands-on courses, including surgical dentistry, are held at this centre.

There is a 28-day educational element (study days) covering both hospital and community practice which are usually held on a Thursday. There are 2 days (1 day per 6-month rotation period) allocated for self-directed learning.
