Timetable for Applications

Applications for admission to advanced programs must be received as follows:
Endodontics, October 1


 

Completed applications and related information are reviewed first by the faculty of the department of interest. In selecting applicants for admission the faculty considers academic records and personal qualifications. Final approval for admission rests with the advanced education coordinating committee. Responsibility for advising the student after admission rests with the department chair.

Orientation

A departmental orientation session is usually held the first week of classes, beginning July 1. Incoming students are acquainted with the School of Dentistry, its policies, procedures, faculty and facilities.

Student Issue -- Advanced Programs

Dental units in the school's clinics are equipped with midwest type tubing and couplers for low and high speed air hand pieces. Advanced students must provide their own adapters to fit the school's couplers unless the students' present hand pieces are already so modified. The Dental Bookstore will assist in such conversions, if necessary. The bookstore has some low speed air hand pieces available for rent.

Students accepted into an advanced program should consult their program directors about needed equipment.

Applications must be completed and filed with the Department of Endodontics by October 1st of the year prior to the year of anticipated entry into the program. The completed application must be accompanied by a $50.00 application fee. This fee is nonrefundable and may not be credited to tuition fees should the applicant be accepted into the program. Applications will not be considered until all records and fees have been received.

 Criteria used to evaluate program applicants include: dental school grade point average, class rank, National Board scores, research, publications, experience since graduating from dental school, letters of recommendation, and motivation for endodontics.

Applicants who are deemed acceptable by the Graduate Endodontic Admissions Committee are appointed for a personal interview. Applicants will be informed as to the decision of the Admissions Committee within two weeks of the interview. Upon written notification of acceptance into the program, the applicant must send a deposit fee of $1,000.00 within ten days or he/she automatically loses his/her reserved place. This deposit fee is applied to the first term tuition and is nonrefundable should the applicant withdraw his/her acceptance at a later date.

Reapplication - Applicants who are not successful in obtaining a training position may subsequently reactivate their application for the following year consideration. A reapplication letter of instruction must be accompanied by a $50.00 reapplication fee. Applicants are encouraged to update their application material to reflect the most current and accurate information. Completed application packets will be retained for one year following each review.

A certificate in Endodontics and the degree of Master of Science will be granted by the University upon the satisfactory completion of all required courses and the research project. (No extra time needed and no thesis per se - the research project satisfies it.)


It is possible for our graduate students to practice outside of the graduate program while enrolled. However, this activity must not compromise the educational experience and the fulfillment of responsibilities to the patients and the Department of Endodontics.

 

Stipends
In recognition of the direct teaching responsibilities, the University of Detroit Mercy awards stipends of approximately $1,500 during the first resident year and $2,000 during the second resident year.

Admissions to pursue postgraduate study in endodontics are limited. At the present time, two students are accepted each year. Applications for the program are evaluated on the basis of the following factors:

  • Grade point average
  • Class standing
  • Academic achievements
  • National board examination scores
  • Experience and training
  • Research activities
  • Recommendations
  • A personal statement of goals (include explanation for choice of graduate field, expectations for learning in your chosen field of study, and anticipated career goals)
  • Other supporting evidence such as a CV or résumé

Individuals selected from the applicant pool for consideration for admission are invited for a personal interview, which is an additional basis for selection of students.

Clinical Fees - Postgraduate Certificate Program Postgraduate student with a U.S. or Canadian Dental Degree:

$1,050/semester (2/academic year)
$455/summer session (2/summer)
Total $3,010 per year
Additional $2,000 per year Equipment Assessment
Total: $5,010


 

Stipend and Employee Status
Due to a review of GME funding status, resident stipends for the year beginning July 1, 2005, are not established. Once known, they will be posted on the web-site and communicated to all residents. GME-eligible postgraduate students are eligible for a flexible benefit package, which includes choices among health, life, and disability insurance. Future income is contingent upon continued availability of federal funds and, therefore, is subject to change at any time.

Tuition Scholarships
Currently, GME-eligible postgraduate students are considered full-time employees of the University and, as such, are eligible for employee tuition scholarships for graduate credit hours.  This permits the GME-eligible student to enroll for up to 15 credit hours per year.  No more than six credit hours may be taken in each of the fall and spring semesters, and three credit hours may be taken in the summer.  Established postgraduate fees for the postgraduate program will continue.

State of Nebraska Residency
As employees of the University, GME eligible postgraduate students are considered to be residents of the State of Nebraska. Ordinarily students who are not GME eligible are considered not to be residents of the State of Nebraska.

Tuition & Fees

UNC-Chapel Hill Tuition and Fee Structure
2004-2005 Academic Year
  In-state Out-of-state
First Year $ 6,511.02 $ 19,880.02
Second Year $ 6,511.02 $ 19,880.02
Third Year $ 3,843.02 $ 10,527.52

Graduate students must pay tuition and fees for all three years of study and training. The tuition and fees are usually less during the third year of studies than quoted above. These charges are subject to change at any meeting of the NC Board of Trustees and a yearly increase of 5 - 10% should be anticipated each year.

Tuition Remission

Tuition remission is the reduction of the out-of-state tuition rate to the rate set for NC residents. The difference between in- and out-of-state tuition is a scholarship provided by the NC State Legislature for students with identifiable talents who have been awarded research, teaching, or graduate assistantships.

Tuition remission is awarded by the semester. No student may receive an award for more than four semesters. To meet the general eligibility requirements, the student must be registered for nine or more credit hours during the semester of the award. The number of awards available is limited.

There is no application process for tuition remission. Nominees are selected from among all out-of-state students, including international students, who are within their first four semesters and have assistantships covering a full semester. Due to limited funding, having an assistantship does not guarantee tuition remission.



 

Financial Aid

Financial Aid/Stipend Support

Financial aid is available in the forms of grants, fellowships, teaching assistantships and departmental stipends. The University also offers small research grants. The granting committees review an applicant's research proposal and overall academic performance and may require an interview.

Departmental Stipends subject to yearly budget considerations:

First Year $8,000
Second Year $8,500
Third Year $10,000

Financial Aid
OHSU is committed to providing access to academic programs in an environment that stimulates the spirit of inquiry, initiative and cooperation and is similarly committed to helping student’s finance their education. Over 90% of students enrolled at the School of Dentistry receive some type of financial assistance. Both federal and private loans are available to US citizens and permanent residents of the United States. Financial aid applications are available in January/February each year on the OHSU Financial Aid website. Detailed information on financial aid can be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid at www.ohsu.edu/finaid/.

Residency Requirements:
In Oregon, as in other states, instruction fees at publicly supported four-year colleges and universities are higher for nonresident students than for resident students. Currently, nonresident students are assessed instruction fees that approximate the full cost of instruction. The current policy used in determining residency seeks to ensure that only Oregon residents are assessed the resident fee. This policy, as approved by the Oregon Health & Science University Board of Directors can be found at http://www.ohsu.edu/registrar/residencypolicy2003.pdf.

The philosophy of such a program mitigates against spoon-feeding of instruction to students and is intended to prepare them for independent decision-making. Students should not only be taught, but they should be educated. Thus, the students are asked to prepare reports, search the literature and discuss topics in seminars. There is less emphasis on formal lectures and more emphasis on group discussion.

Keeping abreast of current literature, as well as knowledge of landmark articles from the past literature is necessary for a deep-seated understanding of the field of endodontology. The literature is critically evaluated for research design, findings and conclusions. The scientific method is thus explored and evaluated.



 

Acceptance to the Endodontology Program

Preference is given to academically-accomplished applicants with one or more years of clinical practice experience or completion of a general practice residency (GPR) or an advanced education in general dentistry (AEGD) program. Preference also is given to applicants with prior research experience/training, scientific publications, and/or prior advanced degrees in basic science/biomedical fields.



A separate application fee of $40 is required when applying to the endodontics program.  Please make checks payable to:  Temple University School of Dentistry
