Hi,

To my understanding, there are two ways to become an OMS. I know you can go to Med school and then Dent school or vice versa. You have to go through each program (4 years for dent and for 4 years for med) Is this true? Are these the only two options?

just a curious and confused predent.

thanks

The most common route is 4 years of dental school, followed by either a 6-year residency (OMFS-MD program) or a 4-year residency (non-MD program).

The other route (not very common) is to earn an MD first through the normal four years of med school, followed by a 6-year residency during which the resident goes through the last two years of dental school and earns a DDS.

HTH.

if you have time check around for school that also offer the oms fellowship. I know in medical school in milwaukee the offer the program. It is one year follow your dental school. This is really help to prepare you to get into the

That is an internship and not a fellowship. Yes you are right the internship does prepare you to match for OMS in case your scores havn't been stellar and you are really fixed on OS. There are a lot of universities that offer the 1 yr internship. Also upon the completion of this intership some give you a GPR certificate
