Welcome to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program at Denver Health Medical Center. Thank you for taking the time to explore information on our Web pages. I hope you find this information to be a helpful introduction to our residency program, which offers training in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program at Denver Health is a four-year program that leads to the oral and maxillofacial surgery certificate. Two applicants are selected for the program each year, in addition to three non-categorial positions.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program is fully accredited and complies with the requirements as prescribed by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
The primary goal of the advanced Training Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Denver Health is to produce an oral maxillofacial surgeon who will be qualified to take and pass the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) Board Examinations and who will be competently trained in practicing this area of surgery. Competency will be demonstrated by meeting the resident objectives of the following clinical areas: oral and maxillofacial surgery, anesthesia, medicine, cardiology, pediatric medicine, emergency medicine, general surgery, neurosurgery, surgical intensive care, otolaryngology, and plastic surgery. Residents will demonstrate annual Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Training Examination (OMSITE) improvement from their first to their chief year. Resident experience will culminate in submission of an original transcript in the chief year.
Through didactic preparation, clinical experience, and hospital training, we are dedicated to developing ethical, state-of-the-art oral and maxillofacial surgeons with a strong sense of community service, who are committed to life-long learning, the pursuit of clinical excellence, and are able to interact with other health care provider to provide excellent patient care.
