Academic Leadership for Residents program is a partnership with the American Institute of Dental Public Health (AIDPH) and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, School of Dentistry. Residents can participate in an experiential internship with AAL that will develop academic leaders and empower them to pursue educational excellence, the application of knowledge and the discovery of ideas that lead to lifelong learning. Open to residents of all healthcare related professions, this program consists of two-phases (3-days each) supplemented by online (web-based) activities. Participants who attend both phases and complete all the activities and projects will be awarded Internship Completion Recognition.
Providing exceptional quality training and networking opportunities, the program will challenge residents' assumptions about academic careers and expand their horizons with a focus on these objectives:
