Hands on Components for Fellowship in Maxillofacial Prosthodontics:
*Intra Oral Prostheses*
Patients will be provided to fabricate an obturator or a resection prosthesis under the guidance of the faculty. All material related to the fabrication of these prostheses will be provided. Participants will perform all clinical steps related to the fabrication of the prostheses, and will also have the option to view the lab technician perform the steps needed to process the prostheses for delivery.
*Extra Oral Prostheses*
All material required for fabrication of one type of extra oral prosthesis (ear/nose/eye) depending on patient requirement will be provided. Participants will fabricate the prosthesis from start to finish and deliver to the patient under the guidance of the faculty.
There will be live demonstration of obturator and resection prosthesis fabrication for the participants.
Benefits of Fellowship: Completion of this program will greatly enhance the skill set of the participants for decision making and treatment in complex maxillofacial treatments.
As a result, participants will increase their chances of being employed by hospitals that serve cancer/trauma/cleft patients, as well as provide private care to this group of patients.

TORII STATION UPDATE!!
On May 5, 2023, CPT Yang competed in the 49th Naha Harii Dragon Boat Race in Okinawa as a member of the Army Ladies Dragon Boat Team.
She was one of 33 team members paddling in the 2.4-ton dragon boat. Her team finished first out of 21 teams, advanced to the category final, and became the first all-female team to win the competition. Additionally, SSG Hampton and SGT Ryan competed in the Naha Harii as part of the Black Knights (the army men's team).
They finished in second place in their category. The event gave clinic staff members a chance to get to know one another and socialize outside of their regular responsibilities because they serve as representatives of the local community.
