General Practice Residency


Indiana University School of Dentistry offers an accredited one-year post-doctoral general practice residency (GPR) program to six residents each year.  Residents provide services at the Regenstrief Dental Clinic at Wishard Memorial Hospital, Grassy Creek and College Corner Clinics (located in a Wishard Health Services Community Health Center), and Indiana University Medical Center.  In addition, they are involved with rotations in oral and maxillofacial surgery, general anesthesia, family practice medicine, oral pathology, the Cancer Center at Indiana University Medical Center.

Application Process

Applicants must have graduated from an accredited US or Canadian dental school prior to starting the program.

Indiana University participates in the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) of the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and the match.  Applicants to our GPR program will be able to register for a match number within the PASS applicant portal.  This will enable applicants to enter all necessary data at the PASS site, select one or both services, and submit/pay through ADEA.  Data will flow to National Matching Services, Inc. (NMS) for all applicants who select the Dental Match from the service menu, and ADEA will transmit the appropriate fees to NMS.
