The Fundamentals of Clinical Education (FCE)

Equip your new dental educators with the right tools to succeed with the Fundamentals of Clinical Education program (FCE), designed and facilitated by the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and AAL.

For a limited time, we are offering free access to module one of the FCE.

The five-module FCE is designed to provide faculty calibration and orientation for new, part-time, and adjunct clinicians transitioning to academic careers. Module 1: Critical Presence of Clinical Faculty addresses the unique traits of part-time faculty as they contribute to the mission of academic dentistry, describing their diverse demographics, their vast array of professional experience, their various roles in teaching, and the influence they have on the success of the dental school as an institution of higher learning. Sign up below to access the complimentary course module!
