University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The University of North Carolina School of Dentistry Department
of Diagnostic Sciences offers an accredited three-year postdoctoral program in
Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology leading to a Master of Science degree.
The program prepares qualified oral and maxillofacial radiology
specialists for positions of responsibility in institutions of higher dental
education or in the private practice setting. Participants gain experience in
radiation physics, biology and protection and enhance their teaching and
research skills. The program emphasizes understanding of imaging technologies
and proficiency in radiologic interpretation. This includes training in the physics
and interpretation of advanced imaging modalities, such as magnetic resonance,
medical and cone-beam computed tomography. The curriculum also includes microscopic
and clinical pathology to strengthen the graduate student's understanding of
clinical correlations with radiologic findings.
The program requires the execution and completion of a
Master’s-level research project, which supports the graduate student’s
development of scholarly competency, including critical thinking skills and
understanding of scientific methodology. Combined degrees with other supporting
disciplines are possible at the Master’s and PhD-level. Upon completion of all
requirements, each student is eligible for examination and certification by the
American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology Division of the Department
of Diagnostic Sciences collaborates with other clinics and academic departments
in the School of Dentistry and UNC Hospitals and on campus in the areas of
health physics, computer sciences, medical physics, as well as other related
biomedical and clinical sciences. The faculty has published extensively in the
scientific and clinical literature and is actively involved in patient care.
