SECOND-YEAR PROGRAM
The second-year curriculum complements the first-year program and expands the clinical experience to 80 percent of contact hours. Board-certified specialists from each Naval Postgraduate Dental School (NPDS) clinical department are designated as consultants to augment the comprehensive dentistry staff. Each consultant has assignments in the Comprehensive Dentistry Clinic to observe and mentor residents during patient treatment.
The didactic portion of the second-year course consists of regularly scheduled seminars for literature review, clinical pathology, and treatment planning. Periodically, special lecturers and outside consultants are scheduled. In both the clinical and didactic portions of the course, NPDS staff members from each discipline are responsible for articulating the treatment philosophies of their various specialties and coordinating these philosophies with the concept of comprehensive dentistry.

RESIDENCY PROGRAM IN ENDODONTICS
Director: Commander Terry Webb
This 2-year program involves study of the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the human dental pulp and periradicular tissues. It encompasses the basic clinical sciences, including biology of the normal pulp, and the etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the pulp and associated periradicular conditions.
Previously, completion of an ADA-accredited endodontic program was required before a Candidate was qualified to take the Written Examination. A new category, Prospective Board Candidate, was established to allow students enrolled in an ADA-accredited endodontic program to take the Written Examination in the year of their graduation.

The curriculum also includes military subjects that enable dental officers to undertake contingency roles and to perfect their skills in military leadership and personnel management.


FIRST-YEAR PROGRAM
The first-year program consists of a full calendar year of study. The program provides a formal schedule, with time allotted for research and clinical practice. The courses in the biological sciences are designed to update the resident’s knowledge in these areas and to correlate this subject matter with clinical practice. A significant amount of time is spent in literature and clinical seminars on endodontics. In the seminar format, scientific knowledge, the latest research developments, and clinical concepts such as diagnosis, treatment modalities, treatment options, and patient management are correlated. During the year, the resident devotes attention to developing clinical proficiency and undertakes a research project in the field of endodontics.

RESIDENCY PROGRAM IN ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL PATHOLOGY
Director: Captain James T. Castle
Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology is the specialty of dentistry and pathology that deals with the nature, identification, and management of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions. It is a science that investigates the causes, processes and effects of these diseases. The practice of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology includes research, diagnosis of diseases using clinical, radiographic, microscopic, biochemical or other examinations, and management of patients.
Training consists of 36 months of didactic, clinical and laboratory coursework with coordinated rotations at the Naval Postgraduate Dental School, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, National Naval Medical Center, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, State of Maryland Medical Examiner’s Office, and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. The program is designed to prepare the resident to practice surgical and clinical Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology within the military medical network. The curriculum also includes military subjects that enable dental officers to undertake contingency roles and to perfect their skills in military leadership and personnel management.
Emphasis is placed on microscopic and clinical diagnoses as well as the proper management of head and neck disease. A research project in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology is required, with subsequent presentation of the research or a scientific abstract at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. An additional project suitable for publication will also be assigned while at the AFIP.
Successful completion of this program leads to certification in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and eligibility to challenge the board examination administered by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. It is also expected that the resident will challenge the examination process leading to Fellowship status within the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.
FIRST-YEAR PROGRAM
The first-year of the residency program is conducted at the Naval Postgraduate Dental School (NPDS). It includes training in the biological sciences, particularly as it relates to the morphologic and clinical study of diseases affecting all organ systems of the body with special emphasis on the head and neck regions. Didactic courses in both oral and general pathology are a major focus of the first year along with introduction to surgical microscopy and daily case unknowns. Training in the clinical phases of oral and maxillofacial pathology is obtained through attendance at clinicopathologic conferences and otorhinolaryngic tumor boards, along with selected clinical rotations. A table clinic will be prepared and presented at the Tri-Service dental meeting. Identification of a research topic and preparation of the initial abstract is expected during this year. A degree of self-direction in the program is provided, with the opportunity for the resident to select an emphasis in clinical or oral histopathology through NPDS 250, Independent Study in Special Topics.

SECOND-YEAR PROGRAM
The second year curriculum is comprised of assigned rotations in general pathology at the National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington DC and the State of Maryland Medical Examiner’s office, Baltimore, Maryland. Residents will participate in the gross and microscopic examination of surgical specimens, and obtain experience in clinical pathology, hematopathology, cytopathology, and dermatopathology and soft tissue pathology. A minimum rotation of 6 months in surgical pathology is required. The resident will also obtain experience with autopsy techniques and will act as a prosector in a minimum of 20 autopsies. The residents will actively participate in the continuing education program offered by the medical pathology staff and are encouraged to present head and neck seminar cases during their year-long rotation.
THIRD-YEAR PROGRAM
The third-year curriculum consists of assignment to the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), Washington, DC. The AFIP acts as a consultation center for pathologists throughout the world. Therefore, this year of training provides the opportunity to study the most unusual and interesting disease processes that occur in, but are not limited to, the head and neck in man. Normally, an opportunity to conduct a retrospective study on one or more of these diseases leading to a scientific publication is provided and highly encouraged.
During the third year of study, the resident will help support the continuing education mission of the AFIP, NPDS, and other military commands through seminar presentations. Support for the forensic mission of AFIP and its affiliates (Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner) will also be provided by the OMFP residents during mass disaster operations on an as needed basis. Challenging the Fellowship examination, which is sanctioned by the Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, rounds out this final year.
The following courses are taken at the Naval Postgraduate Dental School in the third year:

Specific enhancement of diagnostic and treatment skills in implant prosthodontics, geriatric prosthodontics, maxillofacial prosthetics and practice management are emphasized. Additional teaching experience is gained by serving as a mentor during the Prosthodontics continuing education course and as mentors directing selected seminars topics for the comprehensive Dentistry Department. Prosthodontics research studies, if deemed appropriate, are submitted for competition and/or publication in refereed journals. Table clinics developed over a three-year period will be presented. The third year resident is encouraged to seek specific areas that they would like to concentrate their endeavors, and work more independently. Advanced implant cases and techniques will be emphasized.
