ADEA PASS: Applicants

The ADEA Postdoctoral Application Support Service (ADEA PASS) is available to all individuals applying to the over 700 participating advanced dental education programs. ADEA PASS simplifies the application process by allowing you to complete one standardized application, rather than individual applications to each program.  

The 2017-2018 ADEA PASS ® application is now closed.
All application materials must be received by ADEA PASS no later than February 28, 2018. Please be sure to download and print a copy of your application for your records by May 4.

Watch this page for updates regarding the 2018-2019 cycle, which is scheduled to open on May 17, 2018.
