Course Modules

This track leads to a doctor of medical science degree in oral biology with a certificate in Dental Public Health awarded by the Faculty of Medicine of Harvard University and requires a minimum of four years of study. The course requirements and the depth of the research experience are substantially greater for DMSc candidates -- the degree is consistent with the expectations for a Harvard doctoral-level degree. Dentists in this track obtain the DPH certificate and are qualified to take the specialty board exam. This is an excellent option for dentists whose primary aim is to pursue a career in academics or research.
