      Program Description ↑ 

      The University of Michigan General Practice Residency Program is a 1-year postdoctoral training program that provides advanced training in clinical dentistry and applied basic and behavioral sciences.

      Trainees can expect: 

      • Diverse clinical exposure: Michigan Medicine draws patients from around the region, which means you’ll gain experience with all facets of hospital dentistry, including providing services to patients with cognitive and physical impairment, medically complex conditions, and underserved need.
      • Balance of practice and study: Our program is designed as an advanced, multidisciplinary clinical experience, with a strong educational component that emphasizes the application and integration of the basic sciences as part of a problem-solving and evidence-based approach to care.
      • Fruitful collaboration with other disciplines: Dentistry residents serve as integral members of clinical teams across the hospital, consulting on a wide variety of cases, from hematology/oncology to trauma and burn to transplant. Hospital Dentistry actively participates in the head and neck oncology tumor board and craniofacial surgery team meetings, and provides dental evaluation and treatment for patients undergoing radiation therapy, cardiac surgery, chemotherapy, and organ and bone marrow transplants.
