The Dental Internship program, offered at the Health Sciences Centre (HSC), is affiliated with the University of Manitoba and fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada. It is one-year program with a July 1 start date and June 30 end date.

There are two positions available yearly, typically one is offered to applicants with a particular interest in Adult hospital based special needs general dentistry.

Wide experience is obtained in the management of patients in a hospital setting including those whose particular medical or handicapping condition warrants specialized medical and dental care.
