By staff writers

April 2, 2021 -- The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced a new $700,000 dentistry career development award. The deadline for applications is May 21, 2021.

The purpose of the grant is to create a Primary Care Dental Faculty Development Center to support the career development of junior primary care dental trainees in accredited schools of dentistry. The new center will support the development of trainees as future clinician educator faculty and leaders in primary care dentistry.

Trainees will gain skills to be able to develop and implement sustainable academic faculty development activities at their home institutions and in community-based clinical primary care sites or primary care delivery systems, such as Community Health Centers (CHCs). Eligible applicant organizations include accredited schools of dentistry, public or nonprofit private hospitals, or public or private nonprofit entities that are capable of managing the grant. Domestic faith-based and community-based organizations, tribes, and tribal organizations are also eligible to apply.

The center and subrecipient home institutions must be accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) before September 1, 2021. HRSA will check the CODA website for accreditation confirmation.
