SDM announce2s new hires

New faculty arrive as school celebrates distinguished accreditation

After its successful accreditation site visit, SDM continues to emphasize its mentorship program, where students work with faculty mentors to achieve clinical excellence. The site visitors especially noted the school’s successful assessment programs, managed by SDM’s Office of Educational Research and Evaluation. This office, which recently celebrated its tenth anniversary, hired faculty member Juna Snow. The school continues to build on its successful research and community service missions by initiating this year the Delta Dental of Massachusetts Scholars Program and by successfully competing for cross-disciplinary research grants.
