International Student Exchange Program
The University of Alabama School of Dentistry (UASOD) has established a student and faculty exchange program with the schools of dentistry of Meikai and Asahi Universities in Japan. The exchange program allows students and faculty from each school to observe clinical techniques, research programs, and physical facilities at their host institution. Close interaction between individual students and faculty provides an excellent opportunity for learning and cultural exchange. A group of approximately 5 dental students and 1 faculty member from each Japanese university is expected to visit the School of Dentistry for ten days each year. The UASOD will also be sending a group of students to visit Meikai and/or Asahi each year. This outstanding program has become very popular with students and faculty from all three schools.
