UP Dental Students Complete Online Course On Orofacial Pain at Chiang Mai University, Thailand

Recently the Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry at Chiang Mai University (CMU) A. Professor Dr. Narumanas Korwanich, invited UP students to participate in the launch of a new online course in Orofacial Pain. Chiang Mai University is one of UP’s partner universities in Thailand, and our students have participated in an exchange program there in the past. One common goal of both UP and CMU is to strengthen our relationships with other universities, as well as share our resources. Students who attended the course and received the certificate included Kea Rathkanha, Cheng Chansakada, Leng Sreypoun, Tang Oun, Chhim Chamroeun, Sor Chanpiseth, Lorn Pechmarrynet, Van Meying, Heng Rithi and Ty Roniza.

This in-depth Chiang Mai University Mooc-International course was created for Bachelors and Masters students who wanted to learn more about orofacial pain and advance their academic knowledge. Participants in the course who met course completion requirements were issued a certificate of completion from Chiang Mai University.

UP students who participated in this course had to complete a minimum of 80% course study time and achieve a 70% or higher score on the final examination. The course was presented in English and was divided into five lecture lessons which included an introduction to orofacial pain and then explored many aspects of intraoral pain and non-odontogenic pain. Congratulations to the UP students who completed the course.
