Geriatric Dental Medicine Residency

The purpose of the Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) in Geriatric Dental Medicine (GDM) is to train students in the treatment of geriatric patients and adult patients with special needs. The CAGS in GDM will utilize a combination of classroom education, clinical teaching, and clinical education. This 12-month program offers experiences with diverse patient populations in a variety of settings including a long-term care facility, nursing homes, a home care program in the greater Boston area, and a conventional dental clinic. It is designed for qualified dentists who have completed an accredited Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD), General Practice Residency (GPR) program, or have at least two years of clinical experience after graduation from dental school. Students will practice on an interprofessional team, interacting with dental specialists and other clinicians from across a variety of health care disciplines.
