About the Program
This program aims to provide rigorous training in several basic science courses that dental schools require from applicants, while also giving students a unique first-hand look at the dental school located within the host university. This is a great chance for students considering out-of-state options to explore a program that might not have been on their radar and create connections with others that may be helpful along the pre-dental application journey.
Not only is the program itself free, you will also receive a stipend of about $600.
