International Program Welcomes Students from 23 Countries

More than 90 students from 23 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and North and South America joined faculty from the Advanced Program for International Dentists at the start of the 2008-09 academic year for a welcoming boat cruise around Manhattan and a cocktail reception at the Manhattan Penthouse, a Fifth Avenue loft offering panoramic views of New York City.

"This year's incoming class of 95 students is the largest and most diverse ever," said Dr. Stuart M. Hirsch, Associate Dean for International Programs and Development.

The Advanced Program for International Dentists offers full-time, postgraduate-level continuing education courses varying in length from one to two years for dentists who practice outside the United States.
