Mayo Clinic's three-year Orthodontics Residency Program will prepare you for a career in orthodontic private practice, academic medicine, or research. During your training you will earn a master of biomedical sciences degree in addition to the certificate of training in orthodontics.
Program and graduate outcomes
Of the residents who have trained in Mayo Clinic's Orthodontics Residency Program over the past decade, most are in private practice in various parts of the United States. All recent orthodontics graduates have successfully passed the Phase II written examination of the American Board of Orthodontics.
The program is accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation.
You will be eligible to take the American Board of Orthodontic examination upon completion of the residency.
The Orthodontics Residency began in the 1960s, and since that time, more than 45 physicians have completed training. It is anticipated that one resident will complete training in this program annually.
