General Practice Residency

The one-year (second-year optional) General Practice Residency Program sponsored by New York Medical College School of Medicine maintains the accreditation status of Approval without Reporting Requirements by the ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation. The Program has three clinical training sites and fulfills the New York State requirements for licensure by PGY-1 training as well as the mandated 12-month post-doctoral year. The training sites within the Program’s clinical consortium include NYC Health+Hospitals/ Metropolitan, Westchester Medical Center, and Phelps Hospital|Northwell Health and Open Door Family Medical Center. 

The NYMC GPR participates in the American Dental Education Association Postdoctoral Application Support Service (ADEA PASS). When ranking the Program for the Match, applicants can select any or all of the three training sites: Metropolitan, WMC, and/or Phelps/Open Door. The Program will only rank applicants for their stated preferred site(s). Residents do not regularly rotate among training sites, although residents at Phelps/Open Door train in additional hospital experiences including on call.

At all training sites, patient care is comprehensive and is kept within the concepts of general dental practice in both hospital and ambulatory practice environments. The Program is designed for postdoctoral training and is not to be construed as an extension of doctoral training.

The Program offers both didactic and clinical training in the disciplines of restorative dentistry, prosthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, children’s dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, anesthesiology, inpatient care, medical assessment, pain/anxiety control, and medically compromised and special needs patients. These disciplines will be experienced in the outpatient suites, inpatient floors, anesthesia, emergency medicine, and medicine departments, and operating room areas of our clinical consortium training sites. The didactic portion of the Program includes lectures, conferences, and presentations via live videoconferencing, community activities, and hands-on training including simulation.

Resident training occurs under the preceptorship of the attending Faculty staff, which is comprised of general practitioners as well as specialists.

The Standards for General Practice Residency of the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation are the underlying basis for the training Program.
