Yankee Dental Congress

The 2020 Yankee Dental Congress will be held on Saturday, February 1.

Pre-doctoral Research

The Pre-doctoral Research Program at GSDM offers a unique curriculum that offers formal and didactic research training. The link above provides additional information about the Pre-doctoral Research Program, the Intensive Research Elective Course (IREC), course requirements, mentors, announcements and links to important resources such as blackboard courses and policies.

Post-doctoral Research

The Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine has long been a leader in post-doctoral education. The school offers rigorous programs in ten specialties, most of which offer the option of coupling research with clinical training. We are also host to a community of postdoctoral scholars who are engaged in mentored research in a variety of topics.

PhD in Oral Biology

The PhD Program in Oral Biology prepares students for a career in basic oral biology research. The PhD will typically require five years, with extensive didactic and research training in modern scientific approaches to oral biology and oral disease research.

Congratulations to our Science Day 2019 winners:
