This project was initiated in 1990 by ICD Past President Richard C. Rice to improve and increase international relations at the student level by providing a professional and cultural exchange between dental schools in the USA and in other countries. The objective is to experience and study dental education and dental delivery systems to better appreciate the dental culture internationally. The program provides an excellent opportunity for a USA junior dental student to travel and spend three weeks in a pre-selected foreign dental teaching facility. A student from the foreign dental school would then return the visit to the USA. This has been a very popular project. Additional opportunities are available.
