November 2015 Volume L Number 6

Building on the momentum of the past several years, the AAPD and Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: The Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry proudly announces the 2016 Master  Scholarship Program.
The idea of switching from an office practice to an academic career may seem like a daunting challenge—it needn’t be.
An academic career provides practicing dentist, a new opportunity to utilize their experiences in shaping the careers of the aspiring professional. Dentists that teach also have a greater opportunity to develop new techniques and innovations in care through research and scholarly activities and can also influence national dental education policies through service with the AAPD, ADA, ADEA, HRSA and NIDCR.
Other benefits of an academic career include improving access to oral health care through community service, mentoring of residents, full- or part-time employment with benefits and personal and professional growth.
The AAPD and HSHC are pleased to announce five scholarships to be part of the 2016 AAPD class in the Pediatric Dentistry Master Program.
The ITL program consists of six and a half days of learning experiences. This is divided into two phases that are conducted approximately two months apart. ITL scholars complete between-phase activities to reinforce and augment program content.
AAPD/HSHC scholarship recipients will attend the ITL in for Phase I Aug. 11 – 13, 2016, and Phase II Oct. 13 – 15, 2016, at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Ga. Scholarship applications must be received by the AAPD by March 31, 2016.
