In 2019 a pre-dental college student looking for work didn’t get the job but he inspired Dr. Wilson to offer an internship!
Dr. Wilson enjoys teaching, and this young man made worthy contributions to WPDC. As his internship was ending, in January 2020, they worked together to recruit a new intern. Intentionally this time!
He worked hard recruiting, reviewing, and interviewing candidates. Inspired by these candidates, Dr. Wilson decided to make interning a 2020 summer event. Every candidate’s March Spring Break interviews were lined up and we were excited to meet applicants. And then, the pandemic happened…
With WPDC shut down by the quarantine, and the students forced back home, Dr. Wilson decided to offer everyone a remote internship opportunity. While she had no idea how to put this together, she and the interns built it into what it is today.
Our remote internship cycles are four months long. Now, almost three years later, Whole Person Dental Care has hosted eight 4-month cycles and 40 interns!
This opportunity for pre-dental students is outstanding, and our interns make outstanding and often long-lasting contributions to WPDC. It’s an enjoyable time and everyone wins! We do a lot of work, and we practice good self-care via the Internship Wellness addition to the program.
Our pre-professional Interns start growing their colleague network connections right here. As a remote program, the connections made so far extend through:
Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, New Jersey, Connecticut, Georgia, Florida, Westchester, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas, and more…
WPDC also benefits from the employment of some of our most capable intern alumni.
The WPDC Internship Program continues to thrive and grow! We are so proud of our alumni who are now studying dentistry at these Schools of Dentistry and Dental Hygiene:
Columbia, Rutgers, Tufts, Howard, UNC, Meharry, University of Maryland, Tunxis Community College, and SUNY University at Buffalo
