MSBI/Jacobi/AECOM Residency Training Program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program

Beth Israel Medical Center, in association with Jacobi Medical Center and in collaboration with the Albert Einstein School of Medicine offers an advanced education program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS). This integrated clinical and didactic program is designed to meet the certification requirements of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The Program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association.

Program Requirements

All applicants must be qualified graduates of a dental school accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA) (US and Canadian dental school graduates only). The OMFS/MD Residency Program is six years in duration and leads to qualification for certification by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Each resident will also complete the requirements for the M.D. degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine as well as a post graduate year in General Surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center satisfying the requirements for Medical Licensure in New York State.

Two residents will be selected annually for the combined Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery /MD program. Applicants will be interviewed both by the OMFS faculty as well as the admissions committee at the College of Medicine. Appointments are offered to highly qualified individuals who are committed to a career of excellence in patient care, teaching, and research. The prospective residents are simultaneously accepted with advanced standing into The Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The residents will join the medical school in the second year and will be required to successfully complete the second, third and fourth years of medical school minus all of the electives. All elective time will be spent on the oral and maxillofacial surgery service at Jacobi or BI. Continuation on to the clinical years of the training program General Surgery and OMFS will be contingent upon graduation from the Medical School and satisfactory performance in the USMLE part I and Part II. Tuition to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is the responsibility of the resident. Financial aid might be available through the Medical School.

Program Outline

A regular didactic program of hospital rounds, seminars, and conferences is supplemented by specific courses in surgical anatomy and oral and head and neck pathology. All residents will be trained and certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Advanced Trauma Life Support (BCLS/ACLS/PALS/ATLS) during the Program.

It is the intent of the Program to foster and develop both well-trained clinicians as well as scholars who pursue academic careers and research. Teaching experience will also be gained in the context of the Program. The resident staff will participate in teaching more junior residents as well as general practice and pediatric dentistry residents.

The BIMC/Jacobi Residency Program includes rotations at Jacobi Medical Center and Beth Israel Medical Center. During the course of clinical training, the OMFS resident spends time at each of these institutions for a broadened and varied clinical exposure in the Specialty.
