The pre-clinical qualification course is mandatory and aims to review overall the first two years of UWSOD curriculum, with special emphasis on the hand skills for restorative and fixed prosthodontic procedures. A predetermined set of criteria similar to our undergraduate DDS program will be provided to the candidates. If an individual accepted for the program fails the pre-clinical qualification course or withdraws, then the next qualified candidate will automatically fill the slot. A detailed training manual will be provided to the successful candidates before they arrive on campus.

On occasion, on an individual basis, an applicant may be asked to enroll in additional coursework prior to the pre-qualification course to achieve competency in an identified discipline.
