The India extramural experience is a community-based experience that occurs in June each year.  Participants will learn about South Indian health care issues and health care practice.  Students will learn mechanisms to develop culturally congruent health care.  They will also participate in activities appropriate to their specific disciplines and tailored learning objectives.  The majority of the time in India will be spent developing an oral health community-based project that addresses the health needs of the specific community in which the students are working.  There may also be limited opportunities to provide preventive (i.e., fluoride, sealants) or chair side clinical care (i.e., restorative, extractions).
