UCLA Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Program
The School of Dentistry Section of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, in conjunction with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, offers a six-year training program leading to the MD degree and a certificate of specialization in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The program includes three years as a resident on the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Service, two years as a full-time student at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and one year as a resident on the General Surgery Service of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
Concurrent Degree Programs
DGSOM students who are in good academic/professional standing and have successfully completed their required core clerkships may pursue the Master of Business Administration, Public Policy, or Public Health as part of the UCLA concurrent degree programs. For admission, applicants are required to satisfy the regular admission requirements for each program.
The MBA, MPP and MPH programs at UCLA are typically two years; however, the concurrent degree programs allow completion of the master’s degree concurrently with the MD degree, with only one additional year of enrollment. Students spend one year full time on coursework for the master’s degree, and then complete the requirements of their program during the MS4 year back in the medical school, so that the master’s degree and MD degree are both awarded at the end of the MS4 year.
Students enrolled in the MD/MPP and MD/MPH concurrent degree programs pay Medical School fees and tuition throughout all the years of the program whereas students enrolled in the MD/MBA pay the tuition and fees associated with the UCLA Anderson School of Management during their master's year.
