The program is designed to prepare the resident to treat complex prosthodontic patients. Through an abundance of patients, the resident will treat many patients requiring fixed, removable, implants and/or maxillo-facial prostheses. Training is provided in the clinical, laboratory, and basic sciences, which will give the graduate the basis to be successful in a clinical or academic setting. Preparation for attainment of board certification is provided through patient care, weekly review sessions, and two mock boards annually.
Instruction in preparing quality lectures and clinical coverage in the undergraduate clinic is provided. The David Wands teaching fellowship ($ 10,000) is available for selected residents.
Research is required and may lead to a Master Degree. In addition, training grants are available for qualifying students who wish also to pursue a PhD degree
