Dental Scientist Training Program

The Dental Scientist Training Program (DMD/Ph.D.) is partially supported by a National Institutes of Health training grant and the Colleges of Dental Medicine and Graduate Studies. The program is designed to facilitate the development of superior students into individuals who can provide the innovative leadership required in oral health sciences. The integrated program provides the training for the attainment of both the DMD and Ph.D. degrees. Accordingly, the program seeks to incorporate the best qualities of the dental and graduate programs into a cohesive whole and to foster exceptional training in both clinical and research areas.

The Dental Scientist Training Program (DSTP) Committee consists of faculty members drawn from both basic and clinical sciences departments. The program directors with internal and external steering committees are responsible for the operation of the program. The primary purpose of such an administrative structure is to guide the Dental Scientist Training Program toward the highest quality of intellectual curiosity and the attendant of accomplishment of academic excellence.
