Holistic review, a flexible, individualized applicant assessment tool, provides admissions committees a balanced means of considering candidates’ personal experiences, attributes and academic credentials. These are taken into account along with qualities and characteristics that would prove valuable in both academic dental institutions and oral health professions.
ADEA offers many resources to assist institutions in implementing holistic review, including:
- Workshops that aid dental institutions in addressing and reviewing admission policies, procedures and practices
- Pertinent scholarly articles
- Information on related court cases
ADEA is currently accepting applications for Holistic Review Workshops. The half-day workshops, conducted by trainers from the ADEA
Section on Student Affairs and Financial Aid and ADEA staff, provide technical assistance to the entire admissions committee and other key leaders.
