Program description

The M.D.-O.M.S. (Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery) Program is a joint offering of Mayo Medical School and Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education and is a comprehensive surgical specialty residency, during which trainees earn their medical degrees.

  • Become an outstanding clinical Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with competence in all areas of the specialty
  • Consider a career as an academic Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon
  • Obtain and maintain certification by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery including successful recertification throughout their careers
  • Participate in the education of their co-residents
  • Develop skills and interest in self-directed lifelong education

The residency program is six years in length and combines certification in OMS with a Doctor of Medicine degree from Mayo Medical School. It also provides a two-year certificate in General Surgery from MSGME.

The six-year program provides training in all areas of OMS, including:

  • Outpatient sedation and general anesthesia for children and adults
  • Dentoalveolar Surgery
  • Dental and Craniofacial Implants
  • Maxillofacial Trauma
  • Orthognathic Surgery
  • Surgical management of obstructive sleep apnea

  • Surgical management of temporomandibular joint disorders
  • Management of head and neck infections
  • Pediatric Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Fellowship training in OMS is not offered at Mayo Clinic Rochester, so as not to detract from your surgical education.
