Dr Shayan Salim - Oral and Maxillofacial Resident

Dr Shayan Salim - Oral and Maxillofacial Resident

I am a Third year Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery resident at University of California San Francisco. Let me tell you how I ended up in my residency.


I graduated from Arizona State University in May 2011 with a B.S. in Biology, and a minor in animal physiology and behavior. I was pre-dental from day one. The countless hours I spent surrounding myself with dentistry helped build the passion I had for becoming a dentist.

After graduation I started dental school at the University of Colorado. Towards the end of my second year I found a new passion. I fell in love with Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. I became close with the surgical faculty at my school. I spent more hours than allowed in the Oral Surgery department.

I spent every moment I could following the surgeons into the OR and spent weeks all over the country at countless residency programs as an extern in hopes to be selected for a position on match day.

During my time in dental school I did everything I could to make my application stand out. Between holding countless leadership positions, publishing articles, and taking the NBME Basic Science exam multiple times.

All the hard work finally payed off. On January 1st, 2015 I matched into UCSF dual MD 6 year Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) residency program. I started my program July 1st, 2015.

As a part of my residency, I am required to complete medical school and when I am not completing Med school requirements you can find me in the hospital or clinic seeing patients as a PGY-3.
