Residency Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology

THE RESIDENCY PROGRAM IN ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL PATHOLOGY

CUCDM’s Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology Residency Program began July 1, 2003.
This three-year hospital-based residency program is designed to provide the post-graduate dental resident with the clinical and microscopic expertise needed to function as an oral pathologist. The residency seeks to provide a broad, non-classroom-based educational experience in all aspects of oral and maxillofacial pathology. It involves:

  • Participating in the Columbia University Medical Center oral pathology biopsy service, which is closely integrated with the Department of Surgical Pathology
  • Teaching dental and medical pathology residents
  • Providing consultation in the active in- and out-patient clinics
  • Managing and treating oral pathology patients

The residency program provides a collegial environment that fosters research interests in the field of oral pathology, as well as opportunities to develop skills in basic science and clinical research. The program is fully approved by the American Dental Association Council on Dental Education and qualifies the resident for the American Board of Oral Pathology examination.
