International Short-Term Programs

NYU College of Dentistry's Linhart Continuing Dental Education Program provides the administrative support for the "Current Concepts in American Dentistry" international short-term continuing education program. These customized educational opportunities are designed for international dental groups to provide a deeper knowledge and understanding of specific areas of dentistry. Its teaching staff includes NYU College of Dentistry faculty, alumni and outstanding educators from other institutions and private practice. Program topics and content are determined by the special needs of the group in consultation with the Assistant Dean for Continuing Education.

The "Current Concepts in American Dentistry" program was established by New York University College of Dentistry in 1981 and now has over 3,000 graduates from 26 countries throughout the world. In addition to lecture, laboratory sessions and clinical observations, participants are required to complete both a written topic report and two (2) clinical cases in their private practices. All programs are in English. If necessary, a translator will be provided by the group organizer. To maximize the learning experience, sessions in New York City are limited to a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 50 participants. Individual dentists not part of a group may join an existing group on a space available basis and with prior approval of the Assistant Dean for Continuing Education. Attendance in New York City is mandatory in fulfilling the requirements for this program. Specific requirements include:

Six (6) sessions of which four (4) weeks of attendance must be at New York University College of Dentistry in New York City. Also, two (2) additional sessions must be completed either at New York University College of Dentistry or any of our international seminars scheduled at locations throughout the world. Participants are encouraged to complete the program in a timely fashion not to exceed two (2) years.

Participants must complete a written report on a topic to be determined by New York University College of Dentistry. Written reports must be typed. Recommended report length is 15-25 pages. A list of scientific references should be included. The written report may be in English or another language if the participant is not able to communicate in English. However, if English is not the language selected, a one-page summary in English must be included.  

During the final week at New York University College of Dentistry, participants are required to document and formally present two (2) clinical cases performed and completed in their private practices.

Upon successful completion of all program requirements, a certificate of achievement will be awarded by NYU Linhart Continuing Dental Education Program. Please note this certificate program is not applicable to any formal degree program but is an acknowledgement of the participants' commitment to professional growth and development. The final decision for fulfilling the requirements is the responsibility of the Assistant Dean for Continuing Education.
