Early admission dental program with TAMIU launched

May 2004

Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) students considering a career in dentistry will soon benefit from the launching of a 3+4 dual degree and Dental Early Admission Program (DEAP) between the Health Science Center and TAMIU. The innovative agreement will provide TAMIU students with an opportunity to receive both a bachelorís degree in biology from TAMIU and a doctor of dental surgery degree from the Health Science Center within seven years. Accepted students complete a curriculum of 103 hours at TAMIU and summer research opportunities in San Antonio between the second and third undergraduate years.

Following successful completion of the freshman academic year at the Dental School, the students will be granted a bachelor of science degree in biology from TAMIU. Following completion of the four-year curriculum of the Dental School, the students will be granted a D.D.S. degree by the Dental School. This is the first dual degree-DEAP dental program to be offered at TAMIU.
