POSTDOCTORAL ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY The program in oral and maxillofacial surgery is a four-year certificate program. It’s objective is to prepare graduates for a successful and productive career in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The curriculum is designed to develop the clinical, academic, and communicative skills that will provide for diversified career options.

At the completion of the program, an option to pursue a medical degree (M.D.) is available for eligible candidates. The program has been designed to give residents a broad academic and didactic experience in the complete spectrum of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Graduates of the programwill 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. Four-Year Residency Curriculum The first-year residency training is divided between oral and maxillofacial surgery, internal medicine, and anesthesia rotations. Four months are spent on the anesthesia service at Broward Health Medical Center, one month on pediatric anesthesia at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, two months on the internal medicine service, and five months on the oral and maxillofacial surgery service. Six months of the second year are spent on the oral and maxillofacial surgery service encompassing the outpatient clinics and respective Broward Health and Memorial Hospital services. Residents will have increased responsibilities this year, including overseeing the first-year residents, IV sedation cases, and operating room responsibilities. The other six months are spent on trauma/general surgery and are divided equally between Broward General and Memorial Level I trauma centers. The third year of the program consists of expanded clinical training in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Broward Health Medical Center. The resident will function on a junior level, with experiences and expectations consistent with this level of training. This year of training includes one month of implant reconstruction and eleven months of oral and maxillofacial surgery service. During the fourth year of the program, each resident serves as chief resident at Broward Health Medical Center and Memorial Regional Hospital. The primary responsibility of the chief resident is to oversee management of the oral and maxillofacial surgery surgical service. This includes, but is not limited to, formulating the call schedule, arranging resident case coverage of clinical responsibilities, and preoperative/ postoperative patient evaluation and treatment in conjunction with designated facultymembers. Residents will have rotations in implant reconstruction, craniofacial/cleft lip/palate surgery, and facial plastics. It is expected that each resident have an abstract or poster based upon his or her research efforts for presentation at a national meeting and at the NSU CDM research day. Upon completion of the residency program, graduates will receive a certificate of training in oral and maxillofacial surgery. It is expected that all graduates will be prepared for the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery examination and possess clinical aptitude in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery. POSTDOCTORAL ORTHODONTICS The Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics offers a 36-month program. The program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation.

Residents fulfilling the graduation requirements of the program will be prepared to complete the ABO clinical examination. U.S., Canadian, and International graduates are encouraged to apply. The full-time faculty members of this program represent a broad variety of academic, research, and clinical interests. In addition, the program employs numerous adjunct clinical faculty members, ensuring that residents are exposed to different techniques used in treating orthodontic patients. Residents will treat adults, adolescents, and children and experience a variety of contemporary appliances and treatment disciplines, including orthognathic surgery. Interdisciplinary and dentofacial anomalies and Grand Rounds take place on a regular basis with other postgraduate residents and their respective faculty members and facilitate the treatment planning of complex cases. A diagnostic conference with faculty members occurs daily. All residents are required to attend these conferences. The curriculum consists of clinical and didactic courses given through the department, as well as a core curriculum in which all postgraduate residents are enrolled. Residents are expected to be available 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and certain evenings and weekends for scheduled conferences, lectures, and seminars.
