Combined D.M.D. / M.S. in Oral Biology

Students who have already been accepted into the School of Dentistry D.M.D. program can apply to the D.M.D. / M.S. in Oral Biology track to obtain training in hands-on biomedical research. The M.S. in Oral Biology classes and research are completed within the 4 years of the D.M.D. program without incurring additional tuition costs. This provides substantial depth to the clinical degree, including a broad understanding of modern biomedical research which is the basis for clinical therapies, and the opportunity to contribute to development of a novel therapy. Having the M.S. degree strengthens any subsequent application to clinical specialty programs or academic positions.
