The Office of Residency Education works closely with all 10 dental medicine residency programs, and the Offices of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Clinical and Faculty Affairs to create an environment that supports the school’s defined strategic goals within a diverse, welcoming, and supportive community.
The office assists residents with the following services and programs:
Graduate Student Financial Aid
Extended Absence, Leave of Absence, Withdrawal or Dismissal
Resident On-Call Schedule
Policy and Procedure Manual
The Policy and Procedure Manual, which is updated annually by the School and Office of Residency Education, guides residents on the rules, regulations, policies, and procedures of the school. Each resident is responsible for reviewing this document to ensure compliance with the policies and procedures of the school that are contained within, and submit a signed, completed honor code statement.
The office maintains the Resident Core Course Curriculum for the dental residency programs.
A Master of Dental Science degree (MDS) entrance examination focusing on the core curriculum is coordinated by this office for residents enrolled in one of the three-year programs, which offer an optional educational tract leading to an MDS.
