The ADA Center for Professional Success, a Web-based member resource launching this fall, will feature the University of Florida (UF) College of Dentistry Executive Practice Management Certificate Program for Dentists.
Applications for the University of Florida program will be accepted through September 2, 2013, for the fall program, the school noted in a press release.
The University of Florida program will be tied to the Center for Professional Success, which provides support to dentists so they can succeed and excel throughout their careers.
The comprehensive 13-month program begins in October, with one weekend learning module per month in Orlando. Approximately 15 to 25 dentists will receive hands-on customized training, as well as a supplemental online course. Module topics will cover finance, practice operations, compliance, human resources, and sales and marketing. The course will also include how to become an associate and build a practice, plus manage wealth accumulation and debt reduction.
The University of Florida is an ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program-recognized provider, so students can earn up to 186 hours of continuing education credit. Those who are accepted must be practicing, actively licensed dentists, newly graduated dentists, or graduating dentists. ADA members will receive a $500 discount toward the $16,787 tuition.
