The fourth-year curriculum continues to expand the intellectual and clinical experiences of students, including a four-week hospital externship. Part of the externship requirement may be fulfilled in affiliated institutions in other countries. Students continue to attend PCU clinical seminars in which they present clinical cases where the integration of knowledge, skills, and values is emphasized. Coursework is designed to augment the basic knowledge in the first three years. By graduation, students will have demonstrated the competence, confidence, and maturity to qualify as safe, beginning independent general dental practitioners.
