Approval of Sites Where Educational Activity Occurs (Off-Campus Sites)
The Commission on Dental Accreditation recognizes that students/residents may gain educational experiences in a variety of settings and locations. An accredited program may use one or more than one setting or location to support student/resident learning and meet Commission on Dental Accreditation standards and/or program requirements. The Commission expects programs to follow the EOPP guidelines and accreditation standards when developing, implementing and monitoring activity sites used to provide educational experiences.
The Commission on Dental Accreditation must be informed when a program accredited by the Commission plans to initiate educational experiences in new settings and locations. To assist programs in reporting the addition of off-campus sites where educational activity occurs sites, guidelines have been developed.
