Endodontics: Program Requirements

Maintenance of Academic Status
Students in all programs must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 to receive the certificate and/or degree. If a student falls below this average, he/she will be allowed one semester to raise the average to the minimum level. The circumstances creating the deficiency will receive careful consideration.

Dental Practice Privileges
Students in all programs maintain a license and practice privileges in the College of Dentistry, The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and the Veteran's Administration Hospital. Students accepted and enrolled in any of the programs WILL NOT involve themselves in private dental practice enterprises outside these areas. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in dismissal from the program.

Admissions Requirements
Application for the M.S. and certificate programs are accepted from both U.S. and foreign graduates (or those about to graduate). Applicants must be graduates of (or graduating from) an American Dental Association Council on Dental Education accredited program leading to the D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree.

Persons with equivalent degrees from schools outside the United States are also eligible to apply if sponsored by their institution and agreeing to return to teach full-time. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (on a scale of 4.0) or equivalent is necessary for consideration for any of the programs.
