Dental Medicine Dual Admission Program

Dual Admission – Dental Medicine

Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Medicine

The doctor of dental medicine is a seven-year or eight-year program. The seven-year program is a combined program; students will follow a three-year prescribed course of study in the undergraduate biology major. Students will be awarded a bachelor of science degree after successfully completing the first year of professional education at the College of Dental Medicine.

In the eight-year program, students complete the four-year undergraduate biology major and are awarded a bachelor of science degree before starting the dental medicine program. Students in both programs will receive the D.M.D. degree after four years of training at the College of Dental Medicine.

Final determination of admission into the professional program is at the discretion of the receiving college.
