Faculty Development Day is a one-day event, held at Mission Bay, that provides resources to build community and enhance faculty life at UCSF. We include plenary sessions, workshops, and informational resources that are relevant to faculty at all career stages.
Each year, the School of Dentistry community gathers for our annual Research and Clinical Excellence Day. UCSF students and research trainees present their work through posters and oral presentations. For predoctoral students who have spent the summer working on projects with their faculty advisors, this event offers an opportunity to receive feedback as they fine-tune their presentations for a national audience at upcoming meetings of the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA).
