OMFS residents score highest in the Delaware Valley ‘mock’ boards
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) chief residents Fadi Kosa, D.M.D., and Ryan M. Calvi, D.M.D., along with graduates Geoffrey Zinberg, D.M.D., and Matthew Krieger, D.M.D., who graduated from the residency program this past June, excelled at the Delaware Valley OMFS Residency Programs Annual Mock Oral Boards competition, marking the second consecutive year that Christiana Care residents aced the event.
Christiana Care scored highest among the OMFS residency programs participating in the competition, which also included residents from the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson University, Drexel University and Temple University.
The annual mock oral boards test the residents on all aspects of the specialty, from oncology to trauma to craniofacial surgery.
“The results are primarily a reflection of the residents’ hard-work and the dedication and teaching of the faculty,” said Daniel J. Meara, M.D., D.M.D., chair of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery & Hospital Dentistry and program director of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency. “The program continues to improve and strive for excellence, and this focus has continued to transform oral and maxillofacial surgery education and patient care at Christiana Care.”
