The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery residency of Mount Sinai St. Luke's, Mount Sinai Roosevelt is a CODA accredited forty-eight month program. We accept one resident and one non-accredited preliminary intern per academic year.

The intern year is spent working exclusively on the OMS service. The purpose of the internship is to provide experience for applicants who are seriously considering a career in oral & maxillofacial surgery. Our intern functions at a PGY-1 level taking call and participating in all activities related to the residency program including rounds, lectures, and off site conferences. As an intern, one will have the opportunity to improve surgical skills, participate in OR cases, and learn how to manage our busy in-patient service. At the completion of the internship, the intern will be well prepared for any residency program.
