Dentistry Global Outreach and Exchange
The IU School of Dentistry Global Outreach and Exchange focuses on global service and student exchange to teach cultural understanding, access to care and healthcare models with a concentration on oral care. With involvement in locations such as Guatemala, Brazil, and Mexico, the Dentistry Global Outreach and Exchange program has local hosts in each of their locations.
Most week long trips are at spring break or in May or June. In 2019, sixty-seven students participated.
The program encourages reflection on healthcare and cultural issues, confirming the priority each student finds in their profession, and gaining perspective and voice to affect the future.
