About the D.O./D.M.D Dual Degree Program

In order to address the access to care issue and meet the needs of underserved populations, Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) College of Dental Medicine and College of Osteopathic Medicine have structured a curriculum that provides students with an opportunity to receive a D.M.D. (Doctor of Dental Medicine) and D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) degree.

This D.O./D.M.D. Dual Degree Program is symbiotic with the missions of both schools. Graduates of this dual program will prepare health care practitioners to utilize a totally holistic approach to health care that will address preventive medicine and general dentistry, as well as access to care issues, and meet the needs of the rural and underserved populations.

Once students complete this six-year program, they will be qualified for licensure in dentistry and for postgraduate one-year residencies that are required prior to medical licensure.
