Post-Doctoral Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OS)

  • SDM OS 520: General Medicine and Dental Correlations
    Lectures, case presentations, and demonstrations illustrate the relationships between the pathological processes of disease and their clinical manifestations. Emphasis is on the dental management of patients with complex medical problems.
  • SDM OS 521: Pain Control I
    This course presents the pharmacological aspects and indications for the use of local anesthetics as well as patient evaluation and detailed discussion of injections techniques. It will provide an introduction to the management of medical emergencies as well as prescription writing. A review of the relevant head and neck anatomy and neurophysiology will be covered. Each student will participate in a laboratory/clinical exercise which will be offered in the spring semester, prior to entering the clinic.
  • SDM OS 530: Oral Surgery
    This course is an introduction to the basic concepts and techniques of tooth removal as well as minor and major oral surgical procedures. Patient history and physical examination are described. Emphasis will be given to the pre-surgical patient evaluation, risk management, and basic surgical principles.
  • SDM OS 532: Pain Control II
    The course builds on the concepts presented in OS 521, and is designed to provide the dental student with a basic introduction to pain and anxiety control of the dental patient. Emphasis is placed on the psychology of pain, behavior techniques, nitrous oxide, oral and intravenous sedation, along with general anesthesia. Patient evaluation and the prevention and treatment of medical emergencies and management of anesthetic complications will be discussed.
  • SDM OS 640: Clinical Oral Surgery
    This course provides a clinical rotation in oral and maxillofacial surgery in the third and fourth year. It is designed to give the undergraduate students clinical hands-on experience in office surgical procedures pertinent to the general dentist. The student may have the opportunity to observe and/or assist with more complicated procedures in the both the clinic and operating room setting during the rotation. Daily seminars are given throughout the rotation. Clinical rotation: Two weeks.
  • SDM OS 740: Introduction to OMS
    The Department of OMS offers the entering class students of the 6-year MD-integrated OMS residency training program the opportunity to participate in various clinical and non-clinical activities during the first two weeks of their program. The students will be assigned to observe the functioning of the department, work with the resident and attending staff in managing the patients on the OMS services in the operating room, inpatient floors, and in the office setting. Attendance at morning and afternoon rounds and other teaching conferences is an important part of the course. There will be an opportunity to take in-house night-call with other fellow OMS residents at BMC. Day to day instruction will focus on principles and pathophysiology of head and neck surgical disease, pre-, peri-, and post-operative care of surgical patients, and evaluation and development of procedural skills in minor oral surgery in an ambulatory setting.
  • SDM OS 750: Advanced Physical Diagnosis for CAGS/MD
    Advanced principles of and procedures in the physical evaluation in preparation for matriculation into the second year of medical school. Advanced students learn to perform a physical examination, obtain a patient history and evaluate patient information. The first year resident will spend 3 weeks shadowing a clinician-mentor in the ambulatory or hospital setting. The experience is meant to introduce the student to the practice of medicine (broadly defined) and allows the student to practice targeted parts of the medical interview and physical exam. The hands-on learning that these sessions provide is a complement to the basic science courses and physical examination skills obtained in Dental school. A critical component of this education exercise should be on observation of the medical interview in action and observing aspects of the patient-doctor relationship. Limited skills such as interviewing for an HPI, taking a family history, checking vital signs, and holding an otoscope will also be covered. Topics range from how to take vital signs to enhancing awareness of cross-cultural issues. The mentor will need to help the student complete the assignment by arranging for the student to spend a little extra time with a patient each week or two. In some cases the mentor will choose to discuss with the student how s/he approaches a certain topic (for example, how to screen for domestic violence in the pediatric setting.
