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. Each resident will be offered three weeks (15 working days) of paid vacation for the year of residency. Two of these weeks may be taken at the resident's discretion once program responsibilities have been addressed and coverage by classmates, when required, has been arranged. The additional week shall be the week between the Christmas and New Year Holidays.
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.
