Welcome to the School of Dentistry Research Internship program. Our goal is to create pathways to careers in dental, oral, and craniofacial research by opening doors to high school, undergraduate, and non-traditional learners, focusing on engaging rural and underrepresented communities within Oregon.

We have several research internship pathways depending on the level of education. Our program will provide a robust educational experience for all with active learning and online modules. Each intern will benefit from a three-tiered mentorship with a peer mentor, career mentor, and research mentor. At the end of the internship, interns will have an opportunity to showcase their hard work by presenting their research in a mini-conference format. This proposed Research Educational Program will significantly prepare interns to actively pursue dental and oral health research.
