Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

About Program

Nova Southeastern University in conjunction with Broward Heath Medical Center offers a four-year program in oral and maxillofacial surgery sponsored by the College of Dental Medicine. This clinical and didactic program is designed to meet the accreditation standards set forth by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association and certification requirements of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

The program has been designed to give residents a broad academic and didactic experience in the complete spectrum of oral and maxillofacial surgery. To increase the scope of the residents' training and to maximize available clinical exposure, rotations through a multi-hospital network, including two level-one trauma centers and two outpatient clinics, will provide the core teaching sites of the program. Residents will gain experience in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with particular strengths in the areas of maxillofacial trauma, reconstruction, cleft and craniofacial surgery, cosmetic maxillofacial surgery, temporomandibular joint procedures, and implant surgery. Residents are assigned to formal rotations in anesthesia, medicine, general surgery, trauma surgery, plastics, and head and neck surgery.

The curriculum is designed to develop the clinical, academic, and communicative skills that will provide for diversified career options. Graduates of the program will be prepared to pursue a contemporary full scope oral and maxillofacial surgery practice and be prepared for licensure and the rigors of specialty board examination.
