International Externship Exchange Program

SDM PH 660

This is a school-sponsored global initiative available to students in the final year of the 4-year dental program. This two-week elective externship consists of clinical rotations in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at one or more schools/universities of dentistry/stomatology in China, Thailand and Japan. Currently, participating sites include: Fourth Military Medical University School of Stomatology (FMMUSS) in Xian, China; Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Stomatology (SJUSS) in Shanghai, China; Peking University School of Stomatology (PKUSS) in Beijing, China; Faculty of Dentistry, Chulalongkorn University (FDCU) in Bangkok, Thailand; and Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDUFD) in Tokyo, Japan. These are world-leading sites with advanced teaching facilities, well qualified English speaking faculty, and large numbers and diversity of patients. GSDM students will be exposed to these institutions' recognized strength in clinical services specifically for oral cancer patients, with outstanding clinicians, state-of-the-art facilities, and comprehensive approach to all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial/Head and Neck. Selection of GSDM students is competitive and requires formal application to the GSDM Office of Global and Population Health. A student's participation is indicated by a Pass/Fail annotation on their transcript. Although this is a credit-bearing activity, elective courses are not included in calculations of student G.P.A.
