Thank you for your interest in the Summer Student Practitioner Program. Since 1982, BC dentists and selected UBC dental students have participated in this mutually beneficial program, which has been approved by the British Columbia College of Oral Health Professionals. The summer student program provides incoming Year 4 dental students with an opportunity to be part of the day-to-day operation of a dental practice and it is open to students who have successfully completed their Year 3 DMD studies.
We have received funding from the PDC Trust, CDSPI, Synergy Business Lawyers, and other members of our dental community to provide assistance with travel and cost of living expenses for students who wish to participate in a rural practice setting. We are currently seeking expressions of interest from dentists in rural areas of BC. In order to facilitate student matches, we are asking interested dentists to tell us a little about their practices and location.
Yes, our office would like to be involved in the Summer Student Practitioner Program.
