Dentistry — D.D.S. with Biomedical Sciences — Ph.D.
The Ph.D./D.D.S.—offered cooperatively by the School of Dentistry and the Faculty of Graduate Studies, is a combined degrees program leading to the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and the Doctor of Philosophy degree. This biomedical sciences program provides opportunity for well-qualified and motivated students to pursue both a professional and a graduate education; and to prepare for careers in clinical specialization, teaching, or investigation in the areas of health and human disease. The student who has a baccalaureate degree and obtains the approval of the Biomedical Advisory Committee may enter the combined degrees program and work concurrently toward both degrees. A minimum of six years is required to complete this combined degrees program.
