How to view and comment on the SOD Strategic Plan in 2 Quick Steps
Why might this be important to me?
This month is the LAST month we, the student body, have to share OUR thoughts on the dental school strategic plan. By submitting comments, suggesting edits, or providing additions to the plan, YOU have the opportunity to shape the course of this dental school and YOUR experience. The means for viewing and commenting on the plan as it stands has been made very convenient and quick.
The CRDTS exam is an important part of the licensing process for many dental students. These students are actively seeking patients who may be eligible for free dental treatment as a part of this process. Please visit our page by clicking the title of this post for more information.
As school starts, it’s important to get your voices heard in the various organizations that augment our curriculum. Check out our Constitution for additional details about the positions. There are elections happening in each class, so make sure to get your nominations submitted to the 2nd year class presidents!
We’re excited to welcome all the new students to the School of Dentistry and we look forward to meeting all of you. As a way of introduction to the UMN SOD culture we created this Welcome Video for the 1st year orientation:
