OMS Residency Program

The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Program at UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry offers a four-year track where residents receive a certificate in oral and maxillofacial surgery. It also offers a six-year integrated OMS/MD track, which adopts a similar schedule to the four-year program, with the primary difference consisting of requirements for obtaining the medical degree.
For more information on admission requirements and program curriculum, or to apply, please visit the School of Dentistry website.
