2020 TimelineApplicants to this program will have to be already accepted into the DMD program at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Applicants for admission should have an undergraduate record of introductory courses in calculus, physics, biology, and chemistry, both physical and organic, and significant laboratory research experience. Strong consideration is given to letters of recommendation, particularly from individuals who have firsthand knowledge of the applicant’s research experience.

Scores from the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) should be submitted (General); the GRE subject test is optional in the subject of your choice. Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not received a degree from an English language institution must score at least 100 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The BSDM Admissions Committee bases decisions regarding admission on a balanced discussion of undergraduate performance/GPA, GRE scores, professional school transcripts (if applicable), TOEFL (if applicable), letters of recommendation and essay/career goals.
