Application Procedures

Application to the program is always very competitive and can only be made through the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) of the American Dental Education Association. A complete application is required for consideration. The application deadline is September 1st of every year. 

Criteria for selection include: academic record, research and publication records, extracurricular achievement, honors and awards, class standing, professional experience, references, and the personal interview. National Board scores (U.S. applicants) and TOEFL scores (international applicants) are also considered.

All applicants must be prepared to appear for a personal interview in Milwaukee during September, October or November. This occasion has a twofold purpose; faculty members in the program have the opportunity to become better acquainted with the applicant, and applicants have the opportunity to become acquainted with various facets of the program to which they are applying. Phone interviews are not acceptable. 

Individuals invited for a personal interview should also apply to the graduate program.  Forms can be found at Marquette University Graduate School.
