Build dental and oral health knowledge while improving access to critical dental services in Honduras.
Students shadow our local dentists in Honduras to deliver care in resource-limited communities in both rural and urban settings. The curriculum immerses students in the program methodology of international health intervention: community selection, community health worker interviews, pharmacology & traditional medicine applications, mobile dental clinics in rural areas, and monitoring & evaluation systems. The curriculum culminates in two live clinic sessions in our physical urban clinic in Tegucigalpa supported by advanced telemedical equipment to optimize learning outcomes.
In addition to our skill-based learning objectives, building cultural competence is integrated into the course to increase the quality of services and improve outcomes with community partners.
