For residents in applicable programs, the addition of a Master of Science degree to your specialty certificate will only serve to enhance the quality of your educational experience. Experience with the research process, becoming an expert at critical evaluation of the scientific literature, and documenting the results of your study will contribute to your development into a master clinician with a sound scientific basis for evidence based evaluation of materials, technology, practice, and set the tone for professional lifelong learning.
For our 1-year certificate program residents, it is my sincere hope that availability of the University’s Learning Resource Center and the opportunities afforded through access to the Sakai Learning Management System, will enhance the quality of the already outstanding military programs. In addition, I hope your brief introduction to USU will encourage you to apply for admission to our Master of Science degree specialty programs as you progress in your careers.
Please review the remaining sections of this webpage to learn how to access the many USU resources that will help you to maximize your educational experience. I am proud to have you as a member of our College and I look forward to working with you as you develop your knowledge and skills and go forward to become the leaders of military dentistry. Feel free to contact me at any time if I can help you in any way. Again, congratulations!
