ADEA PASS® Evaluators

There are two types of evaluations for ADEA PASS: the Professional Evaluation (PEF) and Institution Evaluation (IEF).

Professional Evaluation

The ADEA PASS Professional Evaluation Form (PEF) is mandatory for applicants with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 per program. If a PEF is requested, applicants are encouraged to select the eForm option. A valid email address is required for an evaluator to utilize eForms; the evaluator's email address must be entered by the applicant within her or his ADEA PASS application account.

Each advanced discipline has ascertained the important qualities they seek in successful applicants. To learn more about attributes considered most important by discipline, click here.

Institution Evaluation

All U.S. dental schools use the eForm medium to submit the required Institution Evaluation Form (IEF) for current students and graduates applying to postdoctoral programs through ADEA PASS. Dental schools outside the United States may choose to do so as well by contacting ADEA PASS to establish an institution account. Applicants will also have to utilize the paper form that will only become available after the IEF has been addedto his or her ADEA PASS application checklist.

If your dental school has recently had a change of dean or the designated contact official for the Institution Evaluation Form, please submit an update to ADEA PASS and we will change our records. If your dental school does not currently participate in ADEA PASS eForms you may register today.
