The Programs for International Dentists at NYU College of Dentistry attracts oral health professionals from over 89 countries. These full-time programs are designed for international dentists who plan to practice dentistry outside the United States. Completion of any of these programs does not qualify participants for licensure in the US.
The programs offer a curriculum of didactic components and clinical experiences in the following disciplines: Comprehensive Dentistry, Esthetic Dentistry, Implant Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Oral Surgery/RCSI, and Orthodontics. Programs vary from one-, two- and three-years in length, with opportunities to participate in elective experiences such as teaching, research and society meetings. In addition, certain programs offer the opportunity for students to participate in NYUCD’s Global Outreach Program.
The Teaching in Dental Education (TIDE) Fellowship is a one-year, full-time course of study designed to foster the career development of dental educators. The program incorporates evidence-based dental teaching methodologies, mentored research, academic writing skills, and leadership training.
The 2016 Summer Practicum for International Dental Students at New York University College of Dentistry is designed for international dental students from universities outside the US who are interested in gaining a US dental education experience with exposure to New York City culture.
