Dental Specialty Foundation Certificate
The Adams School of Dentistry offers a 12-month, full-time postdoctoral certificate program for domestic and international dental school graduates.
The objectives of the program are to provide additional experience to dentists who wish to enhance their knowledge and understanding of current educational and clinical approaches in dental specialty areas.
Completion of the program will prepare domestic and internationally trained dentists with foundational knowledge if the desire is to seek further clinical specialty education or PhD training in the US.
The curriculum includes graduate course work with postgraduate dental students and residents, observation and participation in the graduate clinics, and active participation in a research project under the mentorship of a full-time faculty member. The programs are structured to allow for personalized instruction.
The dental school currently accepts applications for postdoctoral externs in the endodontics, operative dentistry and biomaterials, periodontics, and prosthodontics.
