The graduate program is twenty-four months in duration with an emphasis on high quality clinical training. First year residents immediately start treating patients in the graduate clinic at the beginning of the program and continue throughout the two years. Our clinical faculty members have a vast experience in clinical endodontics and provide coverage in the graduate clinic. Dr. James Bahcall is the Director of the Post-Graduate Endodontic Program.
A Master’s of Science Degree is an integral part of the program. A research thesis or acceptance of a paper in a peer-reviewed journal is required to graduate. Most of the research is directed towards evidence –based research specific to the field of endodontics. Core courses are required that are shared with other post-graduate specialties, in addition to endodontic-specific coursework.
A wide spectrum of resident applicants is accepted each year. This mix varies from year to year and is dependent on the strength of the applicant pool. The prerequisites include composite experience, GPA, class rank, national board scores, along with the interview process. GPR/AEGD or private practice experience is encouraged.
An online application is available on the Graduate School’s Web site. The application deadline is September 1st. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact the Graduate School.
