Project Description

Academic carrer in dentistry or dental office?

Project Abstract

There are significant deterrents to preparing for and pursuing an academic career in dentistry, including the highly viable option of private practice, the changing expectations of academics, the time required to prepare for an academic career, the income differential between academics and private practice, and student debt. Possible actions that could create a more favorable environment for academic dentistry are suggested. These include rethinking the way dental schools and faculty are judged, with the unit of evaluation hifting from the individual faculty member to the department or school.
