The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, offers two certification programs: a six-year certification/MD program and a four-year certification program.
The certificate of training completion and eligibility for taking the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial certification examination is awarded for both programs.
We accept two residents each year.
This program option combines curriculums to lead to a certificate in oral and maxillofacial surgery and a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. The minimum duration of study is 72 months.
In this option, residents attend Texas Tech University Medical School in Lubbock, TX as full-time medical students with advanced standing in the second-year medical class. Six months of the medical school program are spent on the oral and maxillofacial surgery service.
After completion of medical school, residents return to Dallas to complete a one-year general surgery internship at Baylor University Medical Center. The remaining 24 months of the program are spent on the oral and maxillofacial surgery service at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry and Baylor University Medical Center.
The 48-month certificate-only program in oral and maxillofacial surgery is a fully accredited residency made available primarily for United States Federal Service trainees. The first 12 months of the program include time on the parent service as well as a series of resident-level rotations on the general surgery, medicine and anesthesia services.
The final three years of the program are primarily spent on the oral and maxillofacial surgery service with one-month rotations in the oral pathology, head and neck surgery and oculoplastic surgery services.
Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is a 115-acre campus
with 915 beds, a Level I trauma center and nationally ranked specialty services.
