“As an orthodontic resident interested in a career in academia, I was not clear on how to prepare myself. However, after attending AAL’s Academic Leadership for Residents program, I now feel much more confident and with a broader view on how to excel as an educator, researcher, and leader in academia. It was a very inspiring experience, and I now feel that I’m ready to take that next step toward my future goals!”
