We offer Preceptorship programs designed for U.S. or internationally trained dentists to gain postgraduate training in a clinical setting. Preceptorships are observer programs* that do not involve patient care and require a time commitment between one or up to four academic quarters.

Learn more about our 14 Preceptorship programs we offer.

*Please note that the Preceptorship Programs are not accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation. After successful completion, individuals are awarded a certificate signed by the Program Director and the Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs.
