Program Fees

Fees for the Master of Science in Oral Biology (MSOB) program vary based on the specific postgraduate specialty program. Residents in the two-year programs (Endodontics, Orthodontics, and Oral Medicine) are required to pay associated fees at the beginning of the year devoted to the MSOB program. When residents are working on an intra- or extramurally funded research project, they are eligible for a stipend, half of which is merit-based and awarded at the discretion of the MSOB Advisory Panel at the end of the research year.

Residents in the three-year Periodontics program as well as the four-year Periodontal-Prosthesis and combined Orthodontics-Periodontics program, should be able to complete the requirements for the MSOB program within their residency term. If additional time is required to conclude their research activities, students will be allowed up to 6 months beyond the graduation date of their class on a fee-free basis. Should more than 6 months be needed, the student may be required to pay a prorated program fee.
