The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine
offers an integrated dental and graduate research training
program culminating in the awarding of both a D.M.D. and a Ph.D.
in Biomedical Science. Our objective is to offer a program that
produces highly qualified clinical scholars competent as both
clinicians (see Predoctoral Program Curriculum) and as
independent scientists able to initiate and maintain funded
research programs. The presence of these clinical scholars will
improve and enhance the quality of teaching and research in the
nation's dental schools.
In addition, we will continue to provide a program that is
tailored to each individual trainee while maintaining a focus in
the oral biological sciences through seminars, courses, clinical
research centers and collaborative research activities. In that
regard, our training program will continue to be
multidisciplinary in scope and composition. The mix of clinical
programs and research opportunities provides a dynamic and
stimulating training environment in which the clinical scholars
come to appreciate the overall inter-relationships of biomedical
science and clinical dentistry.
