Degree Completion Program

IMPORTANT NOTE: In light of the recent breach in examination security with the NDEB Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge (AFK) exam and subsequent voiding of test scores as well as cancellation of the February 2021 exam, the Admissions Committee is currently reviewing the requirements and selection process for the Degree Completion Program. More information will be published over the next months.

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.

Space availability: there is a possibility that no seat will be available for the Winter 2022 entry. This will be confirmed in June 2021
