UMN PASS

The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry Program for Advanced Standing Students (UMN PASS) is a 29-month program for graduates of dental schools outside of the United States and Canada, who seek to practice dentistry in the U.S.

Our program is designed to facilitate a smooth transition into the US Dental profession and allowing for a long and successful dental career. We offer a strong INTEGRATED program whereby UMN PASS students receive the same clinical education as any other student graduating from University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.   This integrated curriculum allows our UMN PASS students receive a world class education the University of Minnesota has to offer.
