Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, in partnership with Covenant Health, offers two, one-year internships beginning July 1 each year.
The Oral & Maxillofacial Interns are integrated with the OMFS Residency Program at Ascension Macomb Hospital and function at the PGY-1 level, participating in daily morning rounds, performing on-call duties and opportunities for operating room cases.
These employed individuals will split their day time duties between the St. John Oral Surgery and Dental Clinic and at Covenant Health's Dental Offices.
The non-categorical intern regularly participates in the call schedule alongside the program's PGY-1 residents. The Oral Surgery residents cover facial trauma call at Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital, Ascension St. John Hospital (a level one trauma center), Ascension Providence Southfield Hospital, Ascension Providence Park Hospital.
Resident didactics are held each Friday morning from 7am-11am. The non-categorical interns attend weekly and are integrated into the learning environment by actively participating in group discussion, assigned case presentations and journal clubs.
The non-categorical intern will participate in a structured 6 week Physical Diagnosis Course, taught by OMFS Faculty.
The course runs from July - September each year on Friday mornings.
Students will obtain the knowledge and skills essential for performing a medical history and physical examination with an emphasis on patient interviewing and performing a comprehensive physical examination. The final day of the course is spent completing a structured 60 point physical exam with a proctor at the Kado Skills Center at the Wayne State School of Medicine.
Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, most recent dental school transcript, national dental board scores (Part I & II), NBME Score, three letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and a recent photo.
