This program emphasizes advanced treatment of dentofacial deformities with a focus on orthognathic surgery. Jacobi Medical Center Department of Dentistry is affiliated with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY). Our Oral & MaxilloFacial Residency is a six year program with rotations through Jacobi, North Central Bronx and Beth Israel Hospitals. The Orthodontic Fellow will work with the Oral & Maxillofacial faculty & residents, Pediatric Dentistry faculty & residents as well as the attending orthodontists . The faculty profiles can be found on the Jacobi Hospital web site.
The Orthodontic attendings at Jacobi will be mentoring & guiding the Fellow on a regular basis. The Fellow will be trained in all aspects of pre and post surgical orthodontics. We use 3-D computer based surgical planning in which the Fellow will be proficient. The Fellow will be actively involved in the clinical treatment of all the orthognathic patients.
The Fellow is expected to utilize our vast patient volume to conduct independent research and publish articles relating to the treatment rendered at Jacobi. We have teleconferencing abilities with Beth Israel for our Orthognathic Conferences. The Fellow will present cases at conferences along with the OMFS residents. The Fellow will join the OMFS staff in the operating room to "scrub" on the orthognathic cases. All "model surgery" will be done by the OMFS residents with the Fellow. We have a joint conference with Plastic Surgery & ENT at Jacobi to present & discuss craniofacial deformity cases. The Fellow will participate in these conferences.
The didactic portion of the Fellowship will include literature review, lectures & textbook assignments. Lectures are given by Oral & MaxilloFacial Surgery, Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. There will be regular evaluations regarding the educational progress of the Fellow.
The Fellowship is salaried. In addition, health benefits and paid vacations are included. The Fellow will receive a Certificate of Completion of the Orthodontic/Orthognathic Fellowship upon successfully finishing the program. Candidates are required to be licensed in New York State or have the equivalent of a New York License. Liability Insurance is provided by Jacobi Hospital. Completion of a Post Graduate or Orthodontic Residency will be given priority standing. Applicants who have completed a GPR1 will be considered.
Applicants who will be contacted for an interview are invited to spend a full day at Jacobi Hospital to meet the faculty and visit the facility.
