Scholarly Activity


The Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has an active and supportive resident research program. All residents will participate in at least one research project, either of a clinical or laboratory bench nature. The opportunities available at UTMB Health are so varied that almost any research interest can be pursued.
