Fellowship in Pediatric Dentistry

Available to U.S. and Foreign Dental Graduates

Course Description

The Department of Pediatric Dentistry offers an advanced education course entitled “Fellowship in Pediatric Dentistry for the Specialist”. The course is designed to allow the dentist with specialty training the opportunity to focus their study on a special interest area within their discipline. The course curriculum can be tailored to include possible experiences in clinical pediatric dentistry, clinical or basic research or clinical and didactic teaching methodologies.

Program Details

The program begins on June 30 and ends on June 29th. One position is available. Participants are covered by the institution’s malpractice policy, are eligible for resident parking permits, and can defer student loans during their training. The tuition is $31,000 and paid in four non-refundable quarterly payments of $7,500. A Certificate of Program Completion is awarded along with 1200 CEU from the UFCD Dental Continuing Education.

Completion of the Continuing Education Internship Program is an educational goal in itself, and in no way insures acceptance to a Postgraduate Residency Program.  Although many resources will be provided by the selected Department, this is a Continuing Education program and is not listed on the University of Florida Registrar’s records.

Course Objectives

  • Participate in the ongoing treatment of pediatric patients at the UFCOD clinics and at Ayers Children’s Surgical Center
  • Attend departmental seminars including case presentations and literature review
  • Assist in departmental research projects
