Pre-doctoral Student Exchange Program


The pre-doctoral student exchange program will offer students in their final year of school an opportunity to pursue an intensive educational experience, one or two weeks in length at the University of Manchester or Boston University. During the rotation, students will be exposed to the dental education system at the University of Manchester or Boston University and will observe clinical care delivery, participate in lectures, and other scholarly activities as available.
