Harvard School of Dental Medicine and The Forsyth Institute are pleased to announce a joint Research Academy which will offer an unparalleled three-year (minimum) structured Doctor of Medical Sciences (DMSc-only) research-intensive degree in oral biology.

Under the mentorship of world-renowned scientists, participants will undertake an intensive research training experience in laboratories at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) or Forsyth. The goal of the program is to train academic researchers in oral and craniofacial biology and skeletogenesis in the best possible scientific environment, and thus provide superior research leadership to institutions and countries around the globe.

The Program will include required coursework, laboratory rotations, a qualifying examination, thesis proposal, and will culminate in a rigorous DMSc dissertation. Coursework will include a core of HSDM courses including research methods, biochemistry, biostatistics, genetics, cell and molecular biology, and seminar presentations. In addition, each student will take elective courses in disciplines relevant to the student's research theme.

The program is offered to candidates who hold an MD, DMD or equivalent degree, and obtained a TOEFL score of at least 95, with subcategory score minimums of Reading 21, Listening 17, Speaking 24, and Writing 25. The application deadline is December 15.
