About our Observerships:

The UBC Faculty of Dentistry Observership Program was established with the goal of sharing leading Canadian dentistry practices with the global dentistry community. By opening our clinics and lectures to visitors from around the world, we can contribute to further learning and improvement of dentistry practices beyond the local community.

The observership program runs throughout the UBC academic year and allows individual students, faculty, and other groups to observe our students in the Faculty of Dentistry’s state-of-the-art clinics. Observers can attend lectures and/or seminars given by world-renowned professors of oral health. It is a non-credit, per-day program meant to supplement learning, especially paired with pre-existing dentistry experience.

Program duration is a minimum of one day and a maximum of two weeks.

Important Information:

This program is for students currently attending dental programs, or faculty members.  Please note that we are currently full, and maintaining  a waiting list in case additional spots become available.
