Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Resources

Information on the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on patient care and School/University operations. Plus, resources for the Penn Dental Medicine community and alumni.

Alumni Resources

Our highest priority is the overall well-being of the Penn Dental Medicine community. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has created an extraordinary public health situation requiring unprecedented measures to reduce transmission and maintain a safe campus and workplace for faculty, students, staff, patients and visitors.

In response to the need to cancel and postpone events through the remainder of the academic year, we have curated a selection of virtual and online courses that reflect the breadth of intellectual content the School has to offer you. We hope these classes provide you with an opportunity to continuously engage in lifelong learning at your own time and pace while we all do our part to social distance ourselves and, hopefully, mitigate the spread of this virus.

Content will be added regularly, so we encourage you to check back for updates.
