The Advanced Education Program in Prosthodontics is a three-year graduate program that awards a certificate in Prosthodontics and a Master of Science Degree.
The first year is primarily devoted to didactic and clinical prosthodontics. The core didactic curriculum is emphasized to assist the resident in performing the clinical treatments required.
During the second year, emphasis is on clinical treatment. Time is increased in the clinic with minimal time spent in didactic effort. Residents complete a clinical rotation at MD Anderson Cancer Center and a teaching rotation at UT School of Dentistry. Research opportunities are available at the Bering Clinic.
The third year is committed to clinical treatment, specialty lectures, completing the Master of Science requirements, and specialty studies.
Other rotations may include: UTSD Undergraduate Teaching and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, students receive a certificate in Prosthodontics and Master of Science degree from the School of Dentistry. Non-U.S. graduates must complete a one-year preceptorship in Prosthodontics in order to apply for the residency.
