Externships

The Department of Periodontics at the VCU School of Dentistry offers externships to qualified undergraduate dental students who are attending a U.S. or Canadian Dental School Program. A formal application is required for consideration.  

The externship does not have a tuition fee; however, participants are responsible for their own transportation, lodging and living expenses. Because part of the externship involves time at a private periodontal office, transportation is required.

Course content will include working directly with periodontal faculty and residents. Students will participate in resident seminars and attend periodontal lectures. Some reading and library work will be required. As part of the experience, students will have the opportunity to spend time in a private periodontal office. The externship can be for either a one- or two-week duration.
