WHAT IS AWARDED?
AAP Foundation Fellowships are available to the Academy for Academic Leadership (AAL) Institute for Teaching and Learning in the Health Professions. Each $3,500 Fellowship will cover the full tuition for the Institute's Program for Dental School Faculty.
WHO SHOULD APPLY
The program, developed by the Academy for Academic Leadership, will be helpful to periodontists in private practice who have an interest in teaching either full- or part-time.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM FOR DENTAL SCHOOL FACULTY
Through the program, the new faculty member may expect to gain competencies in teaching and other academic skills in the context of career planning. For the private practice periodontist wishing to transition to a faculty position, the program provides the opportunity to learn about teaching and best practices, the academic environment, and career opportunities. Periodontal post-doctoral students will develop a personal professional strategy for a rewarding life-long career as a dental educator.
The program provides 4 days of training in one phase at dental schools with opportunities for expanded virtual experiences. This real-life context for learning provides for large and small group sessions, interactive exercises, case-based and problem-based learning, peer observation of teaching, and reflective journals as well as mentored rotations with dental school faculty.
