The Summer Dental School Experience is a six-week program that will provide participants hands-on experiences in dentistry, exposure to prerequisite courses and Dental Admissions Test review, health disparities research experience, and workshops designed to enhance academic skills or to teach students more about dentistry.
Participants will be able to interact with current dental students as mentors. A maximum of thirty undergraduate students and post-baccalaureate students from disadvantaged backgrounds will participate in the Summer Program on the UM campus in each of the three projects years. Eligible students will receive a stipend of at least $40 for each day they attend class that may be used to pay for on-campus housing or for other expenses if a student chooses to live off-campus. The 2012 Summer Dental School Experience will run from May 21-June 29, 2012.
