The fourth-year curriculum continues to expand the intellectual and clinical experiences of students, including a year-long program in practice management. Students continue to attend PCU clinical seminars in which they present clinical cases where the integration of knowledge, skills, and values is emphasized. Coursework includes continuing education courses offered by the Restorative and specialty departments which reinforce in the D4 student the concept of continuous learning throughout their practice lives. By graduation, students will have demonstrated the competence, confidence, and maturity to qualify as safe, beginning independent general dental practitioners.
