UTHealth School of Dentistry at Houston is accepting applications for a new advanced education program leading to a certificate in oral and maxillofacial pathology. The new OMFP program will begin July 1, 2021 with Professor Nadarajah Vigneswaran, BDS, DrMedDent, DMD, as interim program director. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is launching a year later than originally planned..

UTSD’s robust biopsy service, state-of-the art equipment and relatively new facilities factored into the decision to offer the 36-month OMFP residency program, which will accept one resident per year. The residents will be based primarily at the School of Dentistry, with rotations at McGovern Medical School and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, which are nearby in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center.

Admission requirements are on the OMFP application, and information about cost of attendance is on the UTHealth website. No stipends are available, but residents will have access to health insurance, for a fee. 

For more information, contact Vigneswaran or call 713-486-4410.
