Programs for Current D.M.D. Students
The UFCD supports a wide variety of student organizations.
Peer Mentor Program (Big/Little Program)
The Big Brother/Big Sister Program is a peer mentorship program in which each member of the incoming class is paired with a second-year student. A first-year student’s “Big” will help ensure that the transition into dental school is a smooth one.
This program is designed to answer questions, from determining the appropriate dress code and effectively studying for classes to finding your way around Gainesville.
Peer Tutoring Program
Any student may request a tutor at no charge. Tutors are generally third and fourth year students who excel in their academic coursework.
The Office of Student and Multicultural Affairs provides personal and academic counseling to D.M.D. students. We offer a series of workshops including topics such as:
- Stress management
- Time management
- Crisis intervention
- Suicide prevention
- Eating disorders
