Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Certificate and MD-MOMS

Students are accepted to the School of Medicine after already earning their DDS degree. They take a modified schedule in the first year of the program to develop the necessary clinical skills. In the last two years, the program is designed to provide students with the required medical rotations to broaden and strengthen their basic knowledge and skills in clinical medicine. Second-and third-year schedules are decided by lottery. See MD Degree Curriculum for additional information.
