The Advanced Education in Periodontics program is a 36-month program that provides a Master’s and a Certificate in Periodontics. The program provides training in four areas: didactic, clinical, research and teaching and is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association. It also fulfills requirements for eligibility to the American Board of Periodontology.
Every periodontal resident must complete a minimum of 50 credit hours of course work, including 12 credit hours of clinical practice and six credit hours of thesis work. The remaining credits will be from courses assigned by the program director which are specific to periodontology.
Satisfactory completion of the didactic and clinical components of the program results in a specialty certificate through the Marquette University Graduate School. Satisfactory completion of the research component of the programs results in a Master’s degree through the Marquette University Graduate School. Completion of Master’s degree is a requirement for receipt of the specialty certificate.
