Below are key resources for our online students
Students have full access to the Jennifer Ann Wilson Dental Library and Learning Center, plus additional resources such as LexiComp, ClinicalKey, UpToDate, VisualDx, Study Aids, Stat!Ref, and AccessMedicine.
The Ostrow Distance Learning Office (DLO) has implemented a HelpDesk which allows students to submit academic, administrative, and technical requests.
Faculty and Staff Communication
