Residency Program

  • Application Process

    All applications must be submitted online through the Internship and Residency Match Program web site by the deadline.

    The Dentistry and Oral Surgery Service at the Ryan Veterinary Hospital is an American Veterinary Dental College-approved residency site.

    • One resident position is available each year.
    • The residency program is three years, full time.
  • Structure

    The residents' schedule is structured so that all requirements for a successful AVDC credentials application can be completed and submitted by the resident at the end of the second year. This allows the third year of the residency to include time for preparation for the AVDC examination (usually held in March or April) and time for completion of research or clinical investigation project(s), plus clinical time for a Chief Resident service.

    The aim of the three-year program is to produce well-rounded AVDC-certified veterinary dentists and oral surgeons who have participated in and published results of a research project. A residency certificate will not be provided if the resident does not complete the full three years of the program.
