COVID-19 VACCINE-RELATED REQUIREMENTS
Mandatory Vaccinations, Boosters, and Records Upload
All members of the NYU community — students, faculty, employees, vendors, affiliates, and campus visitors — are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, to upload proof of their vaccination to NYU's portal, and to have that vaccination documentation accepted by NYU.
NYU now also requires all members of the NYU community to receive a COVID-19 booster vaccination as soon as they are eligible and upload proof of the vaccination.
NYU Dentistry also must abide by the New York State Department of Health (DOH) regulations "Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission by Covered Entities" (10 NYCRR 2.61).

Advanced Programs for International Dentists
Our unique, full-time clinical programs provide clinical experiences and didactic knowledge in various dental specialties, specifically designed for internationally-trained dentists. These non-credit, non-degree programs attract international dental professionals who plan to practice outside of 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, and Oral Surgery/Royal College of Surgeons Ireland.
These courses are divided into 90-day programs, which can span one, two, or three years in length and include elective research experiences and presentation opportunities at professional society meetings.
Summer Practicum Program for International Dental Students
The Summer Practicum for International Dental Students at NYU College of Dentistry is an annual two week program 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.
