The Postgraduate Program in Oral Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco is a full-time 36 month course of study leading to a certificate in Oral Medicine and an M.S. degree in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences. Our three year program is aimed at preparing dentists to diagnose and treat complex oral problems, manage oral conditions and diseases that occur in medically complex patients, recognize and manage oral manifestations of primary and acquired immunodeficiency, and manage oral diseases, salivary gland dysfunction, facial pain and chemosensory disorders. The program's main goal is to train applicants for either a full-time or part-time career in academia.
Instruction in all areas of Oral Medicine is provided through lectures, seminars, conferences, and clinical training in outpatient and inpatient settings.
