Rutgers University is one of the most prestigious public institutions in the United States, offering a degree programme, numerous graduate and master's programmes, as well as continuing education courses. 

The Rutgers School of Dental Medicine is one of the few state universities in the USA that allows international dentists to complete the Internationally Educated DMD Program. The Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) programme is taught over two years and three months and allows dentists who complete it to obtain the American diploma and practice in the USA according to specific state regulations.

The Rutgers School of Dental Medicine is an accredited university clinic in which more than 136,000 patients are treated. 

The double master’s degree proposal is the result of a long relationship between both institutions, thanks to which students have the possibility to practice in both countries and have an enriching experience.


External practicums are considered part of the student's training during their stay at UIC Barcelona.
