The Graduate Endodontic Program is a continuous, 24-month Master's degree and Certificate program commencing the beginning of July of each year. It has a full-time director, full-time academic faculty, and part-time clinical faculty members. It is concerned with developing competent, skilled clinicians with teaching and research abilities. To achieve these objectives, the program provides extensive backgrounds in both scientific and clinical knowledge.
The curriculum is designed to fulfill the requirements of the American Board of Endodontics and promote Diplomates. The Program prepares specialists in the fields of diagnosis, all phases of treatment, and prevention of pulpal and periapical dental diseases. It will provide training in research design and methodology as it relates to pulpal, dentinal, periodontal, and related clinical areas, preparing the resident for teaching responsibilities in undergraduate, post-graduate, and graduate levels. A top of the line surgical microscope with a complete and full documentation package is required for teaching a variety of microscopic surgery techniques. The curriculum includes bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration. Presentation of multiple table clinics is required.
The CWRU Endodontic residents have presented more research at the annual AAE meeting than any other endodontic graduate program nationally or internationally.
