Residency Training Program
Residency Training Program Virtual Tour
The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine is pleased to offer externship opportunities for qualified third or fourth year dental students who are interested in pursuing a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery. It is expected that the extern will participate in the clinical, didactic, and on-call activities with the current house officers. This should prove to be an exciting opportunity for interested students to gain further experience as well as learn about the training program at our institution.
Interested students should obtain a completed externship application; written permission from their school; a recommendation from one Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery staff member; and a letter from the Dean's office stating malpractice liability coverage while on rotation at this institution. Students will be responsible for their own living and transportation expenses.
