Graduates from non-ADA accredited schools are required to complete this school's preceptorship program to apply for graduate programs in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD), General Practice Residency (GPR), Endodontics, Oral Pathology, Pediatrics, Periodontics and Prosthodontics.
The Preceptor programs do not award academic credit; upon completion of the program the individual will receive a letter of completion. 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(s) area.
The preceptor will work under graduate faculty supervision and will receive exposure to ongoing research projects. If patient treatment is performed, the preceptor will be required to purchase professional malpractice insurance.
Additional expenses that may be incurred during the Preceptor programs include, but are not limited to: room and board, transportation, parking, textbooks, photocopy and photographic services. Day-to-day living expenses, housing, utilities, transportation, plus all other related costs are the responsibility of the students.
