Undergraduate hospital rotation
Undergraduate dental students at the University of Toronto are required to complete a hospital rotation. The Department of Dentistry accepts six students per week for up to a six-week period from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Dentistry.
Student rotations begin each morning with a one-hour seminar given by departmental dentists followed by observation/teaching in the pediatric dental clinic, orthodontic clinic and the operating room. The seminars are structured to reinforce what students will see in the clinic and operating rooms, to provide treatment approaches that may be useful to them as practicing community dentists or stimulate thought and questions by regarding new treatment modalities that challenge conventional techniques.
