The dental school encourages all students to participate in research related to dentistry and consider careers which include academic dental research. Opportunities for students to involve themselves in research include the UPSTART summer research program and the Honors in Research Program. There are no classes scheduled for the summer between the first and second year to allow students to to participate in research as early as possible in their professional training. Students who decide to pursue research then have ample to time to find mentors, complete projects and publish research before graduation!
The Honors in Research Program (HRP) provides an opportunity for eligible dental students to choose advanced study in dental research or basic health science and receive recognition of their accomplishments at graduation.
Honors work consists of research in some aspect of dental or basic health science. Students conduct laboratory or clinical research (e.g., improving current clinical practices, exploring controversies in dentistry, engaging in basic and biomedical materials research) with the guidance and supervision of a UMMC faculty member.
