Fellowship in Surgical and Craniofacial Orthodontics
The Jacobi Medical Center Fellowship in Surgical and Craniofacial Orthodontics is a one year fellowship (with a potential one year renewal) that focuses on advance treatment of dentofacial deformities that require a surgical orthodontics approach. The program emphasizes orthognathic and management of craniofacial deformities.

The program currently requires all applicants to have:
  • Completed a CODA accredited orthodontic residency
  • Completed a CODA accredited GPR/AEGD
Due to hospital regulations, at this time we cannot accept any applicant who has not completed a GPR. Applicants must be eligible for a NYS license to practice dentistry.

The fellowship runs from July 1 through June 30, though we may be able to accommodate a later start, if necessary.
We have both full- or part-time fellowships. Interested applicants should contact jacobiorthofellowship@gmail.com and attach a CV to request an application. There is no fee to apply.
