Timeline

The residency program operates from July 1 through June 30 of each academic year. There are no fixed quarters or semesters as such, but the program will generally follow the academic calendar of the College of Dental Medicine. The residency program should be considered a seven-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day commitment.

The formal schedule for resident clinical patient care and seminars in the department will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Open time available in the daily schedule is to be used for laboratory work, patient record preparation, research endeavors or academic study. Because of the demands of clinical care and scheduling, some occasional scheduled coursework may be required in the evening or on a weekend. The faculty, realizing the demands of the daily schedule, will minimize such off-hours scheduling. Regardless, residents are expected to attend all scheduled courses without exception.
