Graduate Opportunities


MSc and PhD Programs

Research faculty of Schulich Dentistry are cross-appointed to basic-science departments of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry or other faculties. Post-graduate research degrees are performed through the cross-appointing department. Potential applicants must therefore satisfy the admission requirements of the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the department concerned.

Please review the research programs of our faculty listed under Research Faculty and Scientists (at the left).  For further information including eligibility, please contact the faculty member or the Chair of the Graduate Studies Committee in the department of interest.
