International Oral Health Program

International Oral Health Program

West Coast University is committed to providing oral health education programs for its students to be able to offer competent care to diverse populations. International clinical work can be a life-changing way to develop this competency. As part of its continuing commitment to providing the best possible education, the dental hygiene program launched its International Oral Health Program. Participants in the program will travel abroad for two weeks during the regular WCU term as part of their dental public health training.

Students will be given the opportunity to learn and grow professionally while learning about the lives of different populations around the world. Although the actual clinical work undertaken during the program abroad will depend on the needs of the local community, much of it will be similar in nature to the public health work undertaken by WCU students in the United States.
