Dental Educational Programs

Each fiscal year, our faculty and staff receive nearly $100 million in research funding, including support from National Institutes of Health grants and private foundations.

Advancing research and economic development is at the core of our mission. Research funding has directly contributed to UTHSC's long record of accomplishments in basic science, applied clinical and translational research, and public health, allowing us to continue our contributions to the health of the Memphis-area community. Through collaborative relationships with health care partnerships like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, we are well-positioned to pave the way for innovative patient-centered research and development with a clinical and translational focus.

Prospective Student Notice

Statement on Pass/Fail and S/NC Grades for Prospective and Newly Accepted Students: The changes COVID-19 has brought to higher education include some schools changing course taken in 2020 and Spring 2021 to Pass/Fail type grading. The Admissions Committee encourages all students to choose a grade if possible–especially for prerequisites. If your school does not give you an option in the matter, please be prepared to provide documentation from your school’s Registrar or Academic Counselor that earning a grade was not possible.

Modification to face-to-face course instruction requirement: Science courses should be taken using face-to-face instruction if offered. We are aware that many applicants had their courses switched to online due to COVID19 and will certainly accept those taken in 2020 and Spring/Summer semesters of 2021. For science courses with labs taken Fall 2021 semester, be prepared to provide documentation from your school’s Registrar or Academic Counselor stating that the course and/or lab was not offered in a face-to-face format.
