This paper describes a minimum curriculum in oral pathology for undergraduate dental education in the United Kingdom prepared by the Teachers Group of The British Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. Curricular development in UK dental schools is overseen by the General Dental Council (GDC), the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) and the European Union. These organisations define the framework for education and learning outcomes but provide little or no detailed guidance on syllabus or curriculum. This recommended minimum curriculum has been drawn up by a consensus process involving teachers of oral pathology from all 13 UK and one Irish dental schools and is cross-referenced to the GDC and QAA published requirements for undergraduate dental education. © Blackwell Munksgaard, 2004.
