A $2.5 million, five-year federal grant obtained by the Department of Comprehensive Dentistry will support faculty development and training in the Dental School. The project will provide career development training, including fellowships and workshops for dental students, residents and faculty. Investigators on the grant are Jeffrey L. Hicks, D.D.S., professor, and M. Norma Partida, D.D.S., M.P.H., associate professor in the Department of Comprehensive Dentistry. The intent of the program, sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is to fund projects that address a current shortage of faculty in the primary care areas of dentistry and dental hygiene, and to increase access to oral health care.
