The two-week USC Dental Explorers Program (DEP) offers an exciting learning opportunity for exceptional and motivated college-bound high school students with a parallel core offering for currently-enrolled college students. The goal of this program is to assist in the development of a diverse pool of future professionals by introducing talented students, especially those from historically underrepresented, low socioeconomic and/or disadvantaged backgrounds to the dental profession.
The curriculum includes team building exercises, clinic shadowing experiences, a variety of hands-on clinical exercises and lectures on topical dentistry issues. All participants are expected to attend all sessions of the program and keep a daily journal of activities. A luncheon reception for participants and their parent(s) or guardian(s) will be held on the final day of the program.
There is no fee for the program and no stipend is provided. Participants are required to provide their own lodging, transportation and cover any parking fees and other personal costs. A $5.00 lunch voucher, accepted only at on-campus dining venues will be provided daily.
The program will begin on July 21, 2014 through August 1, 2014 (Monday through Friday only). The program will run from 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.
Enrollment is strictly limited and the deadline for application is Friday, June 6, 2014.
