The Jamaica Hospital Medical Center has a General Practice Residency Program, and is accepting applications for the 2017-2018 academic year.

The program provides excellent exposure to the full scope of Dentistry:

There are many specialists on staff (Pediatric, Endodontics, Periodontics, Oral Surgery and many General Dentists) who cover the outpatient clinic daily.
