The Postgraduate Program of Orthodontics of the Faculty of Dentistry of the
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, after application that had submitted in
June 2012 by the at that time Chairman of the Department Prof. Athanasios E.
Athanasiou, has been successfully assessed in November 2013 under the current
Chairman of the Department Prof. Moschos A. Papadopoulos by the Network of
Erasmus Based European Orthodontic Programs (NEBEOP).
During the recent Congress of the European Orthodontic Society, which took place last June in Warsaw, Poland, it was decided in a corresponding meeting, that the Postgraduate Program of Orthodontics of the Faculty of Dentistry, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, meets all the relevant standards of the Network and provided with the status of «full member».
The Network of Erasmus Based European Orthodontic Programmes (NEBEOP) is a network of European Postgraduate Programmes of Orthodontics, which function according to the national legislation but at the same time meet high guidelines regarding their structure and their content, set by the Erasmus Program of the European Union. The main purpose of the NEBEOP is the quality in postgraduate training in Orthodontics and its advancement in European countries. The number of the Networks’ full members is limited and to become one, requires a thorough and on site evaluation of the postgraduate program.
The status of «full member» of NEBEOP verifies the quality of the postgraduate training provided by the Department of Orthodontics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in international level, and reflects to the long term and the strenuous efforts of the Faculty Members as well as of the students who participate in the postgraduate program.
