Welcome to the site for the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program. We offer the following educational opportunities:

  • Six-year M.D. integrated OMS program (accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation)
  • One-year non-matriculating OMS internship (following results of Match)
  • Externship/Clerkship rotations - one- and two-week externship opportunities to dental students during the 2nd - 4th years of dental school, in addition to four-week clerkship to medical students as a 4th year rotation.

Our department provides treatment for a wide spectrum of conditions affecting the maxillofacial region. Our residents receive full training in all aspects of maxillofacial surgery. Our faculty are consultants for the hospital's Level I Trauma Center, which receives the most critical trauma patients from all of Northeast Florida and South Georgia.

Our department works closely with the Center for Pediatric Facial Disorders to treat a multitude of pediatric cranio-maxillofacial anomalies. Our faculty and residents provide comprehensive treatment for the management of benign and malignant conditions of the maxillofacial region, including microvascular reconstruction. Residents also obtain a wide exposure to facial aesthetic surgery. In addition to the outstanding surgical training, our residents enjoy the many amenities of Jacksonville coastal living.

Thank you for your interest in our educational programs. Please contact us with any additional questions.
