    The way I understand it, it varies from program to program so just check each school's website for more information.

    you get paid if you go to a hospital based residency programs.....the hospital will pay your resident salary with the GME funding it receives from the government........it makes a big difference consider paying $50K tuition a year or get paid $40K a year....that is a difference of $90K a year...and Protho programs usually runs like 3 years...boy that is $270K....do you really want to go to Harvard that bad?

    I'd pay $270k in a heartbeat to be able to drop the H-bomb any time I wanted!

    Even more unfathomable would be people willing to pay $21,000 a year to go to Indiana or $49,000 for out of stater at IU, HSDM is $37,000 a year for dental school

    I attended IUSD in-state. Paying half as much, and actually learning to do dentistry, is unfathomable?

    I love it, this argument is so old but for some reason aphistis still gets tingly about it. Hey aphisits, go spend some time on a friday night with your girl. Us Harvard kids don't have the time to argue with you, we're too busy trying to catch up on "real dentistry" homework. "unfathomable" ... that's such a crappy adjective, buy a thesaurus.

    Hey billy boy, would you mind telling me what learning real dentistry entails. Let me know what your requirements were. By the way did any of you place implants in dental school? How many crown lengthenings or gingival grafts did you do. Did your class do a minimum of 20 crowns? I forgot you probably did tons of fillings and sealants, wow. If you learned clinical dentistry so well why do an AEGD or GPR?

    Aphistis,
    You've got to get me hooked up with this, this sounds great. I'm going to let the faculty know what they are missing. If you could forward anything you have from your school on dentistry I would be more than grateful. I can't wait to learn!!

    I'm surprised you'd try to continue an argument where you've been reduced to criticizing the other person's adjective choices.

    Because I had to do a PGY-1 before starting my anesthesiology fellowship next week. Thanks for asking.

    Have a nice weekend, both of you.

    The OP's question has been answered. Closing.

    You can step down off your soapbox now, that stuff you mentioned was fairly run-of-the-mill at my dental school. Nothing special there.
