Education has always been an integral part of the Foundation’s mission. Fellowships support post-residency training for promising oral and maxillofacial surgeons pursuing a career in academic oral and maxillofacial surgery. Fellowships provide the opportunity for young surgeons to develop specialized surgical skills and to broaden knowledge, experience, and judgment in areas of oral and maxillofacial surgery practice.
Clinical Surgery Fellowship
Those selected for a one-year fellowship make a commitment to spend two years on the staff of an oral and maxillofacial surgery residency-training program thus disseminating the information and skills they have acquired to the next generation of surgeons.
The deadline to apply for OMS Foundation-funded Clinical Surgery Fellowships has passed. The next cycle will open in spring 2016 with applications due on July 15, 2016.
