"The Attitudes of Physicians and Dentists Toward Medicaid and Their Influence on Willingness to Provide Medicaid Care"
The goal of the CDM Student Research Fellowship Program is to encourage and support those students who wish to participate in research training during their DDS (Years I & II) or postdoctoral specialty training, and to encourage the consideration of research related careers as part of students' career choices. Research training provides many benefits, including an appreciation for the process of discovery, a sharpening of the knowledge and skills needed to read and interpret new findings that may be incorporated into clinical care decisions, as well as possibly providing the introduction to a career in academic dentistry. The faculty of this school believes that dentists who seek new knowledge through clinical and/or basic science research make invaluable contributions to the dental profession and the public good.
Students are encouraged to meet and consult with potential faculty advisors for assistance identifying research opportunities, and consultation with upperclassmen is highly recommended. Medical research and dental research share broad areas of conceptual, scientific and methodological common ground, and the Health Sciences Campus contains a vast number of research opportunities available for dental student participation and students are encouraged to seek research experience with laboratories or faculty outside the dental school faculty. Historically about one half of the DDS students tend to work with mentors on the CDM faculty and one half work with mentors from the medical school, school of public health, engineering, and arts and sciences. The following information is designed to help students identify research opportunities and CDM and CU. Information on fellowships, stipends and research awards available from CDM is also provided.
Students are welcome to discuss questions regarding mentor selection as well as other research training opportunities. Send an email request to Dr. Carol Kunzel, firstname.lastname@example.org
