Summary Description

The UCSF School of Dentistry offers non-degree preceptorship and fellowship programs for domestic and international dental school graduates and practitioners through its Continuing Dental Education department. The objective of the programs is to provide additional educational experiences to dentists in a specific area of subspecialty interest. The preceptors/fellows attend school on a full-time basis. The curriculum includes classes with postgraduate and undergraduate dental students and residents. It involves observation in the clinics. The programs are structured to allow for personalized instruction. Upon completion of all program requirements, students receive a certificate of participation. The dental school currently accepts applications for preceptees/fellows in the following areas:

  • Craniofacial orthodontics
  • Oral medicine
  • Orthodontics
  • Prosthodontics and maxillofacial prosthetics
  • Periodontology
  • Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD)
  • Endodontics

*After successful completion, individuals are awarded a certificate of completion signed by the Program Director. This certificate of completion is not the same as a postgraduate program certificate awarded to full-time postgraduate students in a specialty training program in the United States.
