AAMC Calls for Proposals for Oral Health in Medicine Model Curriculum

In partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has announced a call for proposals for instructional resources to help develop a model curriculum for oral health in medicine.

Available through MedEdPORTAL, the association’s peer-reviewed educational resource and publication service in collaboration with the American Dental Education Association, the resources are intended to help educators incorporate oral health practices into general health care and disease-prevention services. Accepted applicants also will receive a $2,000 award and travel support to attend a one-day training workshop on educational scholarship in Washington, D.C. The deadline for applications is November 15, 2011.
