The Hospital's Level III Perinatal Service provides care for mothers and babies. The OMFS division is consulted for nearly all craniofacial anomalies, often after in-utero ultrasound diagnosis. With this opportunity, the OMFS residents gain in depth clinical and operating room experience in the management of primary and secondary cleft lip and palate surgery, as well as, other craniofacial anomalies. This is a unique and valuable aspect of the residency program at Carle Foundation Hospital and Carle Physician Group.
Residency training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) includes hands-on patient care experiences in clinic and hospital settings with a significant amount of time spent in the operating room. Weekly conferences round out the educational experience with both lecture and simulated learning.
