Application Process


There are two positions available on a competitive basis each year in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency.

How to apply

Mayo Clinic participates in the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) and is a member of National Matching Services Inc. Each applicant to our program must be a participant in the matching service.

The Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery will submit a rank order list to the match and abide by the results by offering appointments to all applicants matched with Mayo Clinic.

The application form and all supporting documentation must be submitted by Sept. 1 of the year preceding the appointment date (approximately nine months in advance). The academic year begins in July with orientation in late June.
