IMPORTANT NOTE: International dental graduates can now submit an application to the Degree Completion Program by August 15th. However, the application deadline is now on September 15th. No more application will be accepted after that date.
The Degree Completion Program is intended for graduates of international dental programs that are not accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada (CDAC). Internationally trained dentists that would like to complete their Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree should apply for this program.
The Degree Completion Program length is 2.5 years and successful candidates will be awarded their DMD degree. Students accepted into the Degree Completion Program are placed in the second half of the second-year of the 4-year DMD program.
The number of positions available for the Degree Completion Program varies every year depending on the space available. Successful candidates will begin the program in early December.
