School of Dentistry welcomes UMN PASS dental professionals

This month, dental professionals from India, Syria, Peru, Iran, Vietnam, Russia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, China and Mexico joined the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry’s Program for Advanced Standing Students (UMN PASS). Every January, the 2.5-year UMN PASS program enrolls 15 graduates from dental schools outside of the United States who seek to practice dentistry in the U.S.

The unique program is designed to facilitate a smooth transition into the dental profession in the United States. After the first semester, UMN PASS students are integrated into the overall Doctor of Dental Surgery program to learn and practice procedures specific to the U.S.

The April deadline is approaching for the class of 2021. Learn more about the UMN PASS program here.
