Philadelphia – On March 16, Penn Dental Medicine will provide an opportunity for prospective postgraduate students to learn about its Doctor of Science in Dentistry (DScD) program, which combines the School’s outstanding clinical training in a dental specialty with a research doctorate. The virtual event will take place at 7 p.m. (EST).
Attendees will hear from and interact virtually with students and faculty from the program, learning about the varied aspects of the program, and the unique opportunity to explore research across disciplines and schools within the University of Pennsylvania. The DScD program prepares students to successfully enter the field of academic dentistry for careers as clinical or basic science researchers. Along with research, students gain experience in grant submissions and publishing scientific papers, while also benefitting from strong mentorship.
At Penn Dental Medicine, the DScD can be pursued in conjunction with a postgraduate certificate program in a dental specialty or without a certificate for those individuals who have already completed their specialty training.
The virtual open house will also provide information on stipends available to DScD students.
The open house will be hosted by Dr. Dana Graves, DScD Program Director and Vice Dean for Research and Scholarship; Dr. Esra Sahingur, Associate Dean Graduate Studies; and Dr. Claire Mitchell, Director of DScD Curriculum & Training and Professor, Department of Basic & Translational Sciences.
