The Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology Residency is a three-year, hospital-based residency program designed using methods similar to that of the general pathology residency. One new position is available each year.
Our goal is to prepare highly qualified dentists to be competent in the practice of oral and maxillofacial pathology.
We provide you with integrated and well-supervised practical and didactic experiences in our world-class academic health center. These experiences include:
- Supervised patient contact and review of selected oral and maxillofacial pathology cases
- Coursework in oral and maxillofacial pathology and anatomic and clinical pathology
- Practice in pathology research
- Exposure to new and developing technologies in pathology (e.g., immunopathology, molecular pathology, ultrastructure)
- Exposure to new and developing subspecialty pathology (e.g., dermatopathology, bone, and hematopathology)
In addition to fulfilling the educational objectives of this program, residents will feel comfortable in the hospital environment and will be competent and confident in their interactions with medical colleagues.
Following successful completion of this residency program, residents will meet eligibility requirements for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and can become board eligible.
