The combined D.D.S./Ph.D. (Doctor of Dental Surgery and Doctor of Philosophy) training program available through the UT dental school is a component of the Craniofacial Oral-Biology Student Training in Academic Research (COSTAR) T32 Training Program that is funded by the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. You will become a clinician-scientist who can perform sponsored research in dental and craniofacial-related areas. The goal of the program is to have our trainees become dental school faculty.
