To be eligible for admission to the DPH program, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Hold a DDS degree or equivalent
  • Hold an MPH degree or equivalent
  • Take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), if your native language is not English and you have not completed at least one year of college or university-level studies in the United States. UCSF's institution code is 4840.

Application Procedures

For applicants not in the joint UCB/UCSF program, there are two steps to the application process:

  1. Submit your application through the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) by Feb. 1. You must include the following: personal essay, curriculum vitae (CV), dental school transcript, all undergraduate transcripts, four PASS evaluation forms (PEFs) and dean's institution evaluation
  2. Following submission of the PASS application, submit the nonrefundable application processing fee ($60 for domestic applicants, $80 for international applicants) through the UCSF application fee portal. The deadline is Feb. 1.

If you have international coursework:

You must submit to PASS a course-by-course evaluation of all international transcripts by either Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc., or World Education Services AND send an official copy of the international transcript directly to the SOD Office of Admissions.

If a WES ICAP report is submitted to PASS this will fulfill the requirement for the evaluation and transcript.
