Specialist registration in oral surgery

29 Dec 2016

The Board recently approved a new program of study - the University of Sydney’s Doctor of Clinical Dentistry (Oral Surgery) program, which will take effect from 1 January 2017.

Since the start of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme there has been no approved program of study leading to specialist registration in oral surgery.

As a result of this approval, the Qualification equivalence pathway for specialist registration is now available for applicants who hold a qualification not approved by the Board (e.g. an overseas qualification) in the oral surgery specialty.
