There is one month remaining to apply for the 2023 – 2024 Jeffrey A. Dean/American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) Research Fellowship Program. This one-year, part-time program positions early career dentists, and others with relevant advanced degrees, as active contributors and future leaders. Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. CT on May 16, 2023.

The Jeffrey A. Dean/ABPD Research Fellowship Program allows participants to:

  • Conduct research of value to the larger certification and healthcare community.
  • Engage with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry community when applicable.

During the program year, the research fellows remain at their home institutions, work with self-selected mentors, and attend ABPD or other related events if applicable to their research.

Early career pediatric dentists and junior faculty members are eligible, along with individuals who hold a master’s or doctorate degree in public health, or are engaged in health care research, public health administration and policy, and other relevant disciplines.

ABPD Research Fellows are selected based on the quality of their proposed research project and the relevance of their project to board certification.
