One Year Program
The Preceptorship program in Endodontics provides dentists a one-year didactic, clinical and laboratory experience. The established curriculum involves all aspects of the educational component of the Department of Endodontics: undergraduate level courses, graduate-level courses, department seminars, interdepartmental seminars, hands-on laboratory courses, patient presentations, classic and current literature classes and guest lecture presentations. Research opportunities may be available to participants at the discretion of the program director.
The objective of the program is to enable each participant to adequately diagnosis patients requiring endodontic therapy and to successfully plan and sequence appropriate treatment. All program participants are under the guidance of the Advanced Program in Endodontics Director and the Chair of the Department of Endodontics.
The programs involve didactic instruction and clinical training. Students in the Preceptor programs will attend seminars and courses with the graduate students and will be assigned to the graduate clinics to develop clinical expertise and treatment planning skill in the program area. Student positions within the program may consist of mostly research with the possibility to participate in some clinical experiences.
Acceptances into the Preceptorship programs do not in any way guarantee acceptance to the graduate residency programs. Individuals will be required to apply to the graduate residency programs through normal mechanisms.
The Preceptor program does not award academic credit. Upon completion of the program the individual will receive a letter of completion.
