There are many research opportunities available to ATSU-MOSDOH students. The MOSDOH Research Program emphasizes research in public health dentistry and the basic sciences. It is the home of the Network for Community Oral Health Research, the nation's only practice-based research network devoted to research in the oral health of underserved populations.
Qualified students are invited to participate in ongoing research of MOSDOH faculty. Alternatively, students may elect to conduct independent research by participating in MOSDOH's Research Elective, which is a seminar that helps students develop research skills in all areas, from project development to dissemination. Students also have the opportunity to conduct research at other institutions over the summer, such as other dental schools or the National Institutes of Health.
