This grant provides partial support for a leadership initiative among the nation's dental schools to strengthen the alignment of their institutions with the core missions of health sciences universities--including basic and clinical research, teaching, and patient care. This project is an outgrowth of an Institute of Medicine report, supported by a grant from the Foundation, and published in 1995. The three main components of the project are: (1) the preparation of a series of papers on the compelling issues confronting academic dentistry; (2) a summit conference among deans, provosts, and other leaders; and (3) a follow-up program that includes publication of the conference report and plans for implementing the summit recommendations.
