Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program

Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program

Broward Health Medical Center offers a four year accredited program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) sponsored by the College of Dental Medicine at Nova Southeastern University and Broward Health Medical Center. This clinical and didactic program is designed to meet the accreditation standards set forth by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association and certification requirements of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

The program is designed to give OMFS residents a broad academic and clinical experience encompassing the complete spectrum of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. To increase the scope of the residents training and to maximize available clinical exposure, rotations through a multi-hospital network, including two level-one trauma centers and two outpatient clinics, provide the core teaching sites of the program. Residents gain experience in the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with particular strengths in the areas of maxillofacial trauma, reconstruction, cleft and craniofacial surgery, cosmetic maxillofacial surgery, temporomandibular joint procedures, and implant surgery. Residents are assigned to formal rotations in anesthesia, medicine, general surgery, trauma surgery, plastics, and head and neck surgery.

The curriculum is designed to develop the clinical, academic, and communicative skills that will provide for diversified career options. Graduates of the program will be prepared to compete for fellowship positions, academic careers as desired, or pursue a contemporary, full scope Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery private practice. Residents of our program are well prepared for licensure and the rigors of specialty board examinations.
