The fellows are trained in all phases of maxillofacial prosthetics. Areas of comprehensive patient care and study include all phases of dental and maxillofacial prosthetic intervention (diagnosis, treatment, follow-up) for intraoral and extraoral rehabilitation of patients with acquired and/or developmental maxillofacial defects.
Clinical and basic science research in the areas of oral manifestations of cancer therapies is another intergral part of the program. A second year in clinical research is optional.
