Pacific Dental School Launches Postgraduate Program in Endodontology
Students and dental professionals interested in pursuing the latest advances in the specialty of endodontics may now apply for the new Advanced Education Program in Endodontology offered by University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. The postgraduate program will start in July 2014.
The rigorous 27-month program is designed to provide in-depth clinical training built on a solid foundation of biomedical science. Program director Dr. Ove Peters and his team have created a balanced curriculum to prepare residents for the American Board of Endodontics certification process.
Working in a collegial atmosphere of mutual respect, residents will receive training from expert faculty members from across the United States and abroad. The curriculum is a combination of didactic courses, strong clinical experience and research. Residents are expected to complete 250 cases spanning all areas of contemporary endodontic therapy, including surgical endodontics.
Upon successful completion of the program, residents will graduate with a master's of science degree in dentistry and a certificate in endodontics.
The start of the program will coincide with the school's move to a brand new San Francisco campus starting in July 2014. The new state-of-the-art facility, located at 155 5th Street in the highly accessible South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood, will feature flexible learning spaces, redesigned clinics, research labs, communal areas and space for expanded University programs and events.
Three residents will be accepted each year to the endodontics program. Details about the program and how to apply are posted online. The completed application and all supporting documents must be received by the Endodontic Department before October 1, 2013.
