On March 26, 2018 – Dr. Richard F. Roadcap presented a check to the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry's International Student Experience Program. The school received $2,499.00 from the ICD's USA Section and the USA Section Foundation to help defray the costs of the mission trips the school's students will be taking in the 2018 year.
The ICD USA Section International Student Experience Program provides dental students of today the educational and cultural enrichment necessary for professional leadership in the global community tomorrow. 2016 was the first year under the new name, International Student Experience Program, which reflects our support of the learning opportunities of mission style trips as well as reciprocal exchanges. The popularity of these programs continues to grow, as does academia's appreciation for its benefit to contemporary student education. In 2017, we had 17 USA dental schools participating, representing approximately 35 international trips. Many dental school applicants are even evaluating the availability of international opportunities in their selection process.
