The VCU School of Dentistry plans to offer an M.S. degree in Oral Health Research starting in Fall 2018. The M.S. is a two-year program and is designed with two groups of students in mind.
For students who plan to apply to dental school, the non-thesis track focuses mainly on didactics including core courses and first year dentistry courses. Students will also undertake a small research project.
For students who are interested in research, the thesis track focuses on completion of a research thesis. Students will also take core didactic courses and electives in particular areas of interest (e.g. cancer, microbiology, immunology).
Please complete the inquiry form to express your interest in the program. You will then receive more information on the curriculum and on the application procedure.
