Summer Break: A Trip to China

Six Dugoni School students spent a portion of their recent summer break participating in a new exchange pilot program with two Chinese dental schools, Peking University School of Stomatology and Wenzhou Medical College School of Stomatology. This is the first group of students to participate in the program, which was established earlier in 2012.

During their visit, the Dugoni School students interacted with Chinese dental students and faculty; attended lectures; and observed a variety of dental procedures and case presentations.

They were also able to participate in tourist and social activities including a visit to the Great Wall of China.

"This trip was an experience I feel everyone should take advantage of if given the opportunity,” said Lisa Wu, Class of 2014. “If I can sum up what I learned on this trip in a few words, it is that when you keep an open mind, you invite the opportunity to experience everything you've been taught in school and expand that knowledge even further."
