About the Externship
This is a one-to-four week rotation in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for third- and fourth-year dental students from the U.S. or Canadian dental schools, or medical residents interested in additional exposure to the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
During the rotation, the student will observe and participate in operating room and clinical procedures under the direction of the faculty and chief resident. The extern will attend all weekly didactic conferences and attend ward rounds at UNC Health daily.
It is expected that the extern will take call with the resident on first call. Up to two externs per month will be accepted on a space available basis. The program does not provide (e.g., food, lodging) to support these activities.
