- Program Organization
The Elective in Oral Healthcare Promotion and Management will provide students in the Indiana University School of Dentistry the oppportunity to strengthen their understanding of oral health education in a global context. Through regular online video meetings with dental students at Newcastle University School of Dental Science, IUSD students will become familiar with their partner city and environs as well as collaborate on the study of various topics related to oral healthcare promotion and management. In May, IUSD students will travel to Newcastle, England to meet their colleagues and participate in interdisciplinary forms of dental education and discussions and work alongside their counterparts to deliver oral health education messages.
Both groups of students will gain mutual awareness of delivery, access to care and possible barriers facing potential dental patients in the respective health care systems. The US students will experience how healthcare policies are devised in the UK as compared to the US. This program has the potential to promote inter-school collaborative projects and educational research which may be disseminated via presentations and publications.
