This 12-month residency will accept a total of six dental student graduates who have fulfilled all admission requirements and applied using the PASS application service. The program will start on July 1 and end on June 30 of the following calendar year. Each resident will receive a stipend at the PGY 1 level and will be provided with a benefit package consistent with St. John Providence Health System first year residents. Each graduating resident will be awarded a certificate of program completion.
After the first year, two second-year positions may be made available to graduating residents. A PGY 2 "chief resident" position will contribute to the enrichment of the academic curricula and offer interested candidates access to administrative and academic development programs. In addition to serving as a liaison between administrative faculty and first year residents, the chief resident will be provided with advanced training as a second year resident. Each second year resident will be asked to pursue an area of specific interest (e.g. teaching, research, public health, a particular clinical discipline, etc.). Concentrated instruction will be provided to promote development in the chosen area.
First year residents (PGY 1) are not allowed to work outside of the program.
