The International Externship Program is an exciting opportunity for a team of senior students and an instructor to travel outside the United States on a dental care mission. Past destinations include Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, Guatemala, Vietnam.
Travel is coordinated through a global medical organization and an in-country partner. Missions last approximately one to two weeks.
Each student pays a portion of the travel cost. Fundraisers and sponsors help students obtain mission funds.
Most of the students that enter this program have not ventured outside the US borders. The exposure to cultural differences and provision of humanitarian aid often make the trip a life-changing experience.
