The residency program operates from July 1 through June 30 each year. There are no fixed quarters or semesters as such, but the program will generally follow the academic calendar of the College of Dental Medicine. The residency should be considered a seven-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day commitment.

The formal schedule for residents in the Department will be from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. Open time available in the daily schedule is to be used for laboratory work, patient records preparation, research endeavors or academic study. Because of the demands of clinical care and scheduling, some scheduled coursework may be required in the evening. The faculty, realizing the demands of the daily schedule, will minimize such scheduling. Regardless, residents are expected to attend all scheduled courses without exception.
