24/7 U.S. and Local Country Support
At IMA, we understand the significance of having a strong support network, especially when you’re thousands of miles away from home. That’s why we provide round-the-clock support through a single U.S. point of contact for families back home. During your internship, you’ll also be paired with a program coordinator and a mentor who will ensure smooth day-to-day operations and guide you professionally.
Dental School Admissions Support
As an IMA intern, you’ll have access to our network of experienced dental educators and former members of dental school admissions committees. Successfully completing our dental shadowing abroad or dental internship programs opens doors to personalized dental school admissions counseling, including letters of recommendation, AADSAS/personal statement review, and interview coaching at no extra cost. Countless alumni have leveraged our guidance to secure admission in prestigious dental schools around the world.
Orientation and Training
Before diving into your dental internship, IMA ensures that you’re fully prepared and well-informed. We offer two types of orientation programs: one that familiarizes you with the local area, and another focusing on the work environment. You’ll learn about hospital operations, safety protocols, sanitation requirements, and specific terminology to excel in your internship.
Gated Housing with 24/7 Security
Your safety is our utmost priority. IMA carefully selects properties in the safest areas, with easy access to major roads, U.S. embassies, and your work assignments. Enjoy modern dormitory-style accommodations with amenities like air conditioning, maid service, and laundry service. Our full-time security team is always ready to help with off-site trip planning and escorts.
Travel, Accident, and Health Insurance
Rest easy knowing that IMA provides you with top-rated travel insurance, covering up to $1,000,000 in medical and dental expenses. This comprehensive insurance also includes medical evacuation, lost luggage costs, and trip interruption coverage. Underwritten by Sirius International, which holds an “A” rating by A.M. Best, this insurance is among the best offered by any student travel organization in the United States.
Placement Related Transportation
We’ve got your transportation needs covered! IMA provides daily roundtrip transportation to your placement sites, along with airport transfers upon your arrival and departure. For personal trips and leisure activities, safe and reliable transportation is available at reasonable rates, ensuring your safety and enjoyment throughout your internship.

Stay connected throughout your internship with unlimited Wi-Fi access from our Program Residences. We also provide local cell phones for your convenience during the program, so you can easily communicate with your colleagues and loved ones back home.
We value your feedback! After completing each placement, you’ll have the opportunity to share your experiences with our U.S.-based staff. We use your feedback on likes, dislikes, and suggestions as a foundation for continuous program improvements, ensuring an even better experience for future interns.
