Research Track Program

The Research Track is intended for students who are committed to obtaining a concentrated research experience while attending dental school. Sophomore dental students may apply after the research elective has been completed in freshman year.

The goal of the program is to allow students a connection with clinical, translational, or laboratory research during the four years of study in the College of Denistry. Students must identify a faculty mentor who has adequate resources to support the research and qualified to mentor students in the particular scientific area. Students should be prepared to commit a minimum of four to six hours per week to the research program .

Students who complete the Research Track are eligible for Research Honors and High Research Honors.
