  • Pass the National Board Dental Examination (NBDE), Part 1 or INBDE by the application deadline. Matched candidates must Pass and submit NBDE Part 2 results by the start of the program.

Application Procedures

There are three steps to the application process:

  1. Submit your application through the Postdoctoral Application Support Service (PASS) by Sept 1. You must include the following: personal essay, curriculum vitae (CV), official dental school transcript, upload scanned copies of all other (undergraduate/graduate) transcripts, three PASS evaluation forms (PEFs), dean's institution evaluation and all required scores.
  2. Register with the Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program to obtain a match code number, which you must submit through the PASS application. The Match Program is a centralized selection service that matches applicants to programs.
  3. 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.

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.

Send these items to:

University of California, San Francisco
School of Dentistry Office of Admissions & Outreach
