Our endodontic residents experience a comprehensive 27-month program designed to provide in-depth clinical training in Endodontics supported by a solid foundation of coursework in the biologic principles which uphold the specialty.
In addition to a curriculum that nurtures the clinician-scientist, the program offers clinical experiences with an extensive patient demographic supported by the School of Dentistry and a community dental clinic that is part of an expansive health care network in the San Francisco East Bay Area.
Each resident will also engage in an investigative project and must complete an acceptable thesis to qualify for the Master of Science degree in Dentistry. The thesis is typically submitted for publication in scientific journals.
Classes begin each July. Residents are scheduled for classroom and clinical instruction five full days (and some evenings) per week and full participation is required.
Academic progress is reviewed quarterly and records are maintained by the Department of Endodontics. Attendance and grading policies for this program, and access to the Student Appeals Committee, are generally the same for residents as for predoctoral students.
