Dental Student Externships and Undergraduate (College) Externships

The Division of Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, welcomes current American and Canadian dental school or college students to extern with us. We request a minimum of one week for any externship and try to limit the program to no more than 2-3 externs at any time.Externs are part of the oral and maxillofacial surgery and general practice dentistry team; outpatients, inpatients, operating room, emergency department, etc. Short-term externs will observe, but not actively assist.

The dental student externship application is a letter or e-mail to Dr. Behrman at dabehrm@med.cornell.edu for OMFS externship and to Dr. Hansen at hjh9002@med.cornell.edu for General Practice externship, discussing possible visit dates, a current CV, a Dean's letter stating that you are a student in good standing, and a copy of your school History & Physical Exam including titers and vaccines that cleared you for patient care. College student externs would complete the Medical Center's Volunteer Application instead of the dental school medical information; the form would be provided separately. Unfortunately we do not have housing available, and students are required to make their own housing arrangements. Information on our residency programs can be found at http://cornellsurgery.org/pro/training/oral-Maxillofacial-dentistry-residency.html.
