McGill University, through the Faculties of Dentistry and Medicine, and the McGill University Health Centre, offers an advanced education program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The program is fully accredited by the Canadian Dental Association Accreditation Committee. It is a six-year program and commences on July 1 of each year.
It is the intent of the program to develop both well-trained, practising oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and surgeons who pursue academic careers and research. All residents will also complete an M.D.,C.M. degree through the McGill School of Medicine. For the full M.D.,C.M. curriculum please refer to www.mcgill.ca/study/faculties/medicine/undergraduate/programs/mdcm-docto...
Currently the six-year M.D.,C.M. & OMFS program is only open to dentists who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada, and have graduated from an accredited North American dental school. Candidates for this program must possess a D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree or the equivalent and be eligible to obtain a limited dental license from the Ordre des dentistes du Québec. (A limited license can be issued by the Ordre des dentistes du Québec without prior testing of French language competency.)
