Graduate programs lead to a Master of Science degree and a certificate in a specialty area of dentistry. Programs are designed to meet the eligibility requirements for examination by the particular American Specialty Board and accreditation standards of the Commission on Dental Accreditation. The Advanced Education Program in Endodontics offers an opportunity to earn both a certificate in Endodontics and a Master of Science degree following 3 years of full-time academic endeavor. The graduate program accepts two (2) students each year.
The clinical practice aspect of the program occupies approximately 50 percent of the time, affording a broad-based clinical experience in conventional and surgical endodontic treatment, often in coordination with residents in other dental specialty programs.
The remaining time is devoted to didactic study in both basic science and clinical science disciplines including biology of the dental pulp, endodontic surgery, review of the endodontic literature, and practice management, and research and thesis, with opportunities for clinical teaching also provided. Upon satisfactory completion of the program students receive a certificate in endodontics and a Master of Science degree from the Dental Branch. The program is designed to prepare participants for the American Board of Endodontics specialty examination.

The master's degree is granted by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences after completion of all requirements for the certificate program, completion of an original research project, and the successful defense of a thesis based on the student's research.
Application Information Estimated Expenses
The Advanced Education Program in Endodontics is a 24-month certificate program of intensive study, research, and clinical activity designed to meet the formal requirements for eligibility to take the certifying examination of the American Board of Endodontics. Prior to the student's graduation, research results are expected to be formally written in publishable format and submitted for publication in a refereed scientific journal and a variety of 15 clinical cases must be submitted in the American Board of Endodontics format.
Students interested in obtaining a Master of Science degree have the opportunity to apply for the optional 30-month program. The Master's degree is granted by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences after completion of all requirements for the certificate program, completion of an original research project, and the successful defense of a thesis based on the student's research.
The goal of the program is to develop well-trained clinicians capable of providing biologically based endodontic care and potential faculty members with a comprehensive background of clinical experience, current basic science knowledge relevant to endodontics, and an understanding of research methodology. Clinical experiences include the opportunity to provide diagnostic services, nonsurgical endodontic treatment and retreatment, and surgical endodontic treatment.
Upon completion of an introductory course in advanced endodontics utilizing various clinical techniques at the beginning of the first year, students begin to concentrate on perfecting chosen techniques to perform endodontic therapy in clinical practice. In the second year, students spend one half-day each week at the Audie Murphy Division, South Texas Veterans Health Care System treating medically compromised patients with endodontic problems. These experiences provide the opportunity to participate in physical evaluation of patients and to learn hospital protocol and operating room techniques. The postgraduate clinic is a modern facility designed to expose the student to state-of-the-art equipment including digital radiography. Each student has his/her own treatment room with individual radiographic capability and a Global surgical operating microscope.

The Program in Endodontics is designed to give advanced education to an individual committed to the practice, teaching, or research of endodontics. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the student will receive a certificate in endodontics and will possess the necessary credentials to be declared "board eligible" by the American Board of Endodontics. The student will spend approximately 50 percent of the assigned time in clinical practice and the remaining in basic and clinical science lectures, research, and seminars. Clinical experience will include the complete scope of endodontic practice. Medically compromised as well as healthy patients are treated under appropriate supervision. The range of treatment includes emergency and diagnostic treatment, nonsurgical and surgical therapy, microscopic endodontics, vital and nonvital bleaching procedures, intentional replants, and root extrusion techniques.
Students are encouraged to earn the Master of Science while they complete the certificate program. Three applicants are accepted annually. Applicants must have graduated in the upper portion of their dental school class and have successfully completed both parts of the National Board Examination. The Graduate Record Examination is also required of all applicants. Research experience and clinical experience beyond dental school (such as private practice, military experience, residencies, or teaching) will strengthen the applicant's credentials.
The deadline for completed applications is October 1 of the year preceding anticipated enrollment. Interviews are held during October and early November, with acceptances, alternates, and rejections announced by November 15.

In 1963, BUSDM was founded as the first exclusively postdoctoral dental school. Now, more than 35 years later, we offer comprehensive dental education from the DMD degree to 11 postgraduate degree programs. Most of our specialty training programs offer students the option of coupling a research program (leading to a Master of Science in Dentistry or Doctor of Science in Dentistry) to their clinical training program.
Postdoctoral training at BUSDM is unique. Because of our many large and established postdoctoral programs, we offer unmatched opportunities for research and cross-discipline discussion, such as our Combined Grand Rounds course. And as part of Boston Medical Center--a two-hospital academic health center--we treat patients with complex medical issues. Our patient pool is diverse and our partnerships with community health centers give our students the chance to work directly with people in Boston and surrounding communities.

Advanced Education Program in Endodontics
Residents in the Endodontic Program will pay a tuition of $45,000 for the year 2004-05 for the first year of the two-year program and receive no stipend.
Accepts 12 a year, but look at the cost. Sorta like SC, huh?
The program is funded by a GME grant; therefore, eligible residents receive a stipend during their residency. In addition the College provides full-tuition scholarship to those eligible. The program accepts 12 residents a year and has a total of 24 enrolled in the program. The program has consistently attracted outstanding candidates. Residents in Advanced Education programs had received a $30,000 annual stipend and had their tuition paid for under the federal Graduate Medical Education Act (GME). In August 2003 a federal agency (CMS) ruled that the vast majority of dental schools would no longer be eligible for GME payments. Legislation is currently pending which will determine the future of GME. As of this writing GME stipends and tuition payments will end with the classes entering prior to October 2003. The ultimate outcome of GME is not certain. Following is the tuition for Endodontics for academic year 2004-05 assuming GME funding is not restored. If GME funding is restored appropriate changes will be made.
Application deadline: December 1. Applicants are accepted on a rolling admission basis after October 1 of each year.

No real web page or other contact information. Like San Diego, the phone number above is the main number for the enormous facility.
