Are you considering a career as a periodontist or as a researcher in the area of periodontology? If so, the new graduate periodontology program being offered at the University of Alberta might just be right for you. If you hope to begin graduate studies in 2017, you will have to get your application in before September 1, 2016.
In this 3 minute video interview, the director of the new program and head of Periodontology, Dr. Liran Levin highlights some key information about the program.
September 1 will be the annual application deadline for the program which has two streams: one leading to a M.Sc. and the other leading to a PhD. Graduate students in this program will be prepared to challenge the Royal College of Dentists of Canada (RCDC) Fellowship national specialty examination as well as the American Board of Periodontology exam. Dr. Levin anticipates that up to four residents will be accepted into the program annually.
