OMS Internship

July 1, 2019:  The  2020-2021 academic year  Internship Position application cycle is January 1 – February 1,  2020.

The University of Washington Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery offers 4 one-year internship positions for dentists who are interested in gaining an additional year of education and experience in oral and maxillofacial surgery beyond that which is taught during dental school, and who are preparing to apply to OMS residency training programs.  Non Categorical Interns receive similar education, training, and responsibilities as that of an oral and maxillofacial surgery resident in the first categorical year of the residency training program. The Intern position is a one-year program and cannot be counted toward completion of a formal OMS residency training program.

The internship will provide excellent training covering the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery.  It will be primarily based at Harborview Medical Center – the only level 1 trauma center for the pacific Northwest – and the University of Washington.   A rotation at Seattle Children’s hospital is also possible.

Alongside the excellent clinical training, the interns will be exposed to a strong didactic component and access to research opportunities. Although not mandated, it is hoped that each intern will complete a peer reviewed publication during the year.

This internship year is not accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association.
