Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology
The Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology offers clinical training in oral and maxillofacial radiology through a 24-month clinical certificate program. This program may be
taken either alone or combined with programs leading to a graduate degree. Strong clinical and research based faculty members make this a unique program designed to prepare residents
for academic, hospital or private practice careers in the newest ADA-recognized specialty. Students are expected to develop the clinical and academic skills needed to function
effectively in private practice, a hospital, or an educational institution, and to use complex imaging systems in the diagnosis, study, and management of oral and maxillofacial
diseases and conditions. Students are educated and eligible to challenge the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology Certification Examination upon completion of this program.
The combined certificate/degree programs are intended for those who wish to pursue careers as teacher-researchers. These programs emphasize scientific methodology and development of
skills for the conduct of collaborative or independent clinical or laboratory research, manuscript writing, and grant preparation.
