Post Doctoral Externship for Foreign Trained Dentists

Qualified dentists practicing and residing in countries outside of the US and Canada are offered the opportunity for guided study, attendance, and observation in the setting of the Postdoctoral Specialty Programs in Endodontics, Orthodontics, Periodontics/Implants or Prosthodontics.

This program is for variable periods during the academic year, ranging in duration from one month to one semester or one academic year. Each program will be custom designed in response to individual interests and needs. These programs do not carry university credit nor do they substitute for equivalent time spent in the accredited certificate – granting postdoctoral programs no official records of attendance are kept, and no transcript certifying attendance or work undertaken is provided by the registrar. A certificate of attendance suitable for framing will be issued at the conclusion of the program.
