The fourth-year curriculum continues to expand the intellectual and clinical experiences of students, including the culmination of the three-year curriculum in professionalism, ethics, and practice management with a year-long seminar course in practice management. Students continue to attend PCU clinical seminars in which they present clinical cases where the integration of knowledge, skills, and values and the use of scientific-based evidence is emphasized. Coursework includes continuing education courses offered by the Restorative and specialty departments which reinforce in the D4 student the concept and ability to pursue 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.
