Oral Medicine/ Oral Oncology 9-Month Internship

Course Description

Available to U.S. Dentists and International dentists with US citizenship or a green card.

The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Diagnostic Sciences (OMDS) offers an advanced education course entitled “Internship in Oral Medicine/Oncology for the General Practitioner” The curriculum is tailored to the desires of the intern with experiences in clinical oral medicine, oral medicine case analysis, clinical or basic research and seminars. This course is designed to give the intern an experience in clinical oral medicine that will better equip them to pursue an oral medicine/ residency. The intern can observe in the faculty’s intramural practice, under the direction of the full-time professors and participate in the head and neck cancer tumor board at Shands. In addition, the intern may attend departmentally offered courses and clinical case conferences. We also offer the intern an opportunity to work on a basic or clinical research project during the course. The research may be presented at a national or international meeting and could also be published in the oral and maxillofacial OMDS literature.

This course is for nine (9) months beginning on October 1st and ending June 30th. Tuition is remitted in four (4) equal non-refundable installments (for a total of $26,250). Upon completion of the internship, a certificate of attendance and continuing education units (CEUs) are awarded.

Completion of the Continuing Education Program is an educational goal in itself, and in no way insures acceptance to any Postgraduate Residency Program. This is a continuing Education Program and is not listed on the University of Florida Registrar’s records. The Continuing Education office and the College of Dentistry will work with you to make any arrangements possible for services not provided by the University.
