COMPREHENSIVE DENTISTRY

Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology Preceptor

This program is primarily for colleagues and graduated dentists from countries outside the USA and Canada who wish to learn Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology during a limited period of time, typically 12-18 months. Preceptors may audit any ongoing courses and seminars, carry out independent research and fully participate in the graduate clinical activities as described in the graduate program. Acceptance is dependent on applicant qualifications and ability to pay tuition and subsistence while in the program. Each individual, either the private practitioner or the dental faculty member may choose from a list of topics, experiences, and training offered by the Department. The length of the program will vary from one to twelve months depending on the program selected. Academic credit is not awarded for the preceptorship, but after successful completion students receive a "Certificate of Completion" from the Department of Dental Comprehensive Dentistry. If negotiated at the time of acceptance students may also receive Continuing Education credit on an hour-for-hour basis. Preceptorships are planned with a primary advisor from the faculty and built from one or more of the following topic areas: Oral and Maxillofacial Imaging (basic and advanced radiology, photography, image analysis), Digital and Advanced 3D imaging. Tuition for full-time study is a minimum of $2,500 - $3,000 per month. Additional preceptorship expenses depend upon the content and length of the program.
