AAPD / HSHC Proudly Announces Seven Scholarships for the Master Clinician Program

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 2017 Master Clinician Scholarship Program.

An academic career provides the practicing dentist a new opportu- nity 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 poli- cies through service with the AAPD, ADA, ADEA, HRSA and NIDCR.

The ITL program consists of 6 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 Institute for Teaching and Learning in August and October 2017 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, and will be able to attend the AAPD Com- prehensive Review of Pediatric Dentistry continuing education course.

Scholarship applications must be received by the AAPD by April 14, 2017.

Further information and 2017 dates for the Institute for Teaching and Learning, may be found at their website at itl_home.cfm.

If you’re interested in applying for a scholarship through the AAPD and Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children, contact AAPD Education Affairs Manager Scott Dalhouse at (312) 337-2169 or by e-mail at sdalhouse@
