      Program Description ↑ 

      Parallel four-year* and six-year Advanced Education Programs in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are offered and candidates must apply to each program separately. Special provisions are also available for individuals to pursue a PhD or MS during either track.** Each program prepares practitioners to treat diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. The basic prerequisite for both four- and six-year programs are a DDS or DMD degree from an ADA-accredited dental school. See below for additional requirements for the integrated OMS/MD program. Applicants will be required to submit the Comprehensive Basic Science Exam (CBSE) score offered by the AAOMS.

      Both four- and six-year residency programs are designed to integrate the fields of medicine and dentistry. The residency provides extensive surgical experience and exposure in areas such as oral and maxillofacial pathology, maxillofacial oncology, maxillofacial trauma, reconstruction, cleft palate, orthognathic, dentoalveolar surgery, implants, TMJ and aesthetic surgery as well as outpatient anesthesia.

      The first year of residency will be spent with the Oral and Maxillofacial department. Residents in the second year will complete their medicine, anesthesia, neurosurgery, and oral and maxillofacial surgery rotations. In the third year, residents undergo 4 months of general surgery, 1 month of pediatric anesthesia, and spend the remaining time in the oral and maxillofacial surgery service. In the fourth year, the resident serves as a chief resident with rotations to six different hospitals. Upon satisfactory completion of the four-year program, residents receive a certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
