The International Student Program offers qualified graduates of foreign dental programs the opportunity to earn the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Graduates of this two-year accelerated DDS program may take any state or regional board, and thus are eligible for licensure and practice within the United States.
This two-year accelerated program has application requirements separate from the Doctor of Dental Surgery program. Each new class begins in January. The program consists of didactic courses supported by some on-line resources, preclinical simulated courses provided within the School of Dental Medicine and clinical courses involving direct patient care in the School's clinics and community-based urban and rural public health clinics.
