Episode 002: Is the MD Within Reach for OMS

Marcus Hwang explores with Dr. Mark Engelstad on the relevance of the medical degree to the modern day OMS. Can OMS residencies keep the medical degree as an option as requirements for medical licensure changes? Is there a difference in training in MD-OMS combined residencies? Does the MD matter today?

Dr. Engelstad is the current program director of the oral and maxillofacial surgery residency program at the Oregon Health & Science University. He is the CEO and Founder of Entrustable, an experience logging application for healthcare providers. He received his DDS from University of Minnesota, MD and OMS certificate from the University of Louisville, and completed a craniomaxillofacial surgery fellowship through the AO Foundation in Switzerland. He later went on to obtain a Masters in Health Informatics at the University of Minnesota, and completed a fellowship in Biomedical Informatics at the National Library of Medicine NIDCR.
