Externships & Career Opportunities



Students will complete a 5-week externship at the end of their program. An externship is your opportunity to use your learned skills while working in a dental office, a specialty practice office, or other healthcare setting as a part of your training at IBMC College.

Similar to an internship, you’ll be treated as a regular employee of the company, and your employer will evaluate your work for college credit. That means you’ll be able to put industry work experience on your resume — even before you graduate. Often, IBMC College students are even hired on as full-time employees after completing their externships.
