The Dental Scholars Track is part of the Masters Program. Students graduate with either a Master of Biomedical Science (MBS) or a thesis-based Master of Science (MS) degree.The Dental Scholars Program is designed for students interested in applying to U.S. dental schools. This is a 30 credit program and, in contrast to post-baccalaureate coursework, the Dental Scholars Program leads to a graduate degree.
The School of Graduate Studies - Newark Health Science Campus is physically connected with Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (RSDM) and is taught by faculty of RSDM and the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Our students have access to three faculty from RSDM as academic advisors: Dr. Vincent K. Tsiagbe, Dr. Daniel Kadouri and Dr. Carla Cugini. Students receive academic advising throughout their graduate education. Academic advisement covers course selections for each semester, volunteering opportunities, academic concentration selection, dental school application strategy, time management, and much more.
