AEGD Certificate Program
AEGD residents are provided a stipend, contingent on the availability of funding, for the postdoctoral year which is paid on a monthly basis. For FY2014-15, the annual stipend will be $34,000. Such stipend support is considered as taxable income and consequently subject to appropriate federal and state tax liability.
Malpractice insurance premiums for all resident trainees are paid through institutional resources. This coverage only pertains to clinical care rendered in association with the educational program. Residents are provided three weeks (fifteen working days) of paid vacation. One additional day of paid vacation is provided each month to that resident with the highest clinical production above his/her monthly production goal. The UNC School of Dentistry is a nationally recognized leader in providing for life-long learning. Residents are provided tuition-free access to continuing education courses occurring at the School of Dentistry assuming certain contingencies are met. Access to continuing education courses is on a "space available" basis after paid enrollment is closed. The AEGD program director and the sponsoring department must approve the resident enrollment.
