Harvard School of Dental Medicine is affiliated with the Massachusetts General Hospital General Practice Residency, a one-year program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation with a status of approval with out reporting requirements. It is structured to provide experience in all phases of ambulatory and inpatient dental care. To provide a broad educational experience, the training program combines the resources of several Harvard-affiliated institutions: Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital. In addition, residents have required rotations in oral and maxillofacial surgery, anesthesiology, and internal medicine. Lectures, literature reviews, and case presentations are scheduled throughout the year. The goal is to create an environment for learning that will enable each resident to develop not only clinical dental skills, but also intellectual skills needed to face the challenges of the future.
