The purpose of this rotation is to familiarize the resident with the scope of oral and maxillofacial pathology. The resident will take part in the daily sign-out of cases in the Oral Pathology Laboratory. In addition, interesting cases from study sets of oral, head, and neck lesions will be reviewed. Depending on the particular cases available at the time of the rotation, the resident may also have the opportunity to work on forensic dental cases and to evaluate clinical patients with oral disease. Reading of texts and journals is encouraged and expected.
