Externships are offered to third-year dental students who are interested in a brief but concentrated exposure to the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The duration of the Externship is two weeks. The dental student extern will participate in all departmental activities, both clinical and didactic. Also, the extern will be encouraged to take in-house maxillofacial trauma call with the OMS residents.
