Curriculum

AEGD- Venice is a fast-paced, clinically-based training program designed to expand residents’ skill sets beyond simple restorative dentistry and teach a systematic approach to diagnosis and patient care. While the program is heavily weighted toward clinical experience, the didactic training is a critical component and major strength of the program. This portion of the program, which includes various aspects of basic and clinical sciences in dentistry, extends throughout the academic year. Residents are also encouraged to participate in self-directed learning. Below is a list of mandatory and common optional training courses offered to residents.
