Groups S1910 & S1911

Dr. Dominicis, Dr. Dragosh, Dr. Josef, Dr. Solomon,

We want to start off by thanking the university for the exceptional education and experience that we have received so far.

You have given us all a chance to, not only establish a career in dentistry, but also enabled so many life lessons along the way with our independent living, in a unique learning environment across the world.   It has been an amazing experience thus far at Nicolae Testemițanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

The curriculum and program you established made this career not only a realistic pursuit, but now a committed goal and mission to succeed as dentists in California.  It has truly incited and fueled our passion year after year and we are excited about our future.

It is with profound appreciation and gratitude for the exceptional opportunity you created for us, that we come to you with a sincere request. 

While you and your staff have done a commendable job, we are all aware our accreditation to be able to practice in California ends December 16, 2023. Falling short of our goal to graduate with California accreditation, would not only create hardships on your student body in the program, but could potentially eliminate dentistry as a career path for many of us.  This would truly be a tragedy given all of the efforts to date by you, your faculty, and the student body. 

Our graduation date is targeted to be in the spring of 2024. We would like to find a solution that achieves our mutual goals and commitments as intended, with graduation occurring within the timeframe that provides us with California accreditation upon graduation.

We are making an impassioned plea to you, and your entire staff, to help us achieve our goals within the timeframes currently outlined by California.  We recognize the extra effort and commitment this will require on your staff and us, but we are determined to do whatever it takes to make our efforts to date mean something. We are requesting an adjustment to the schedules by staff and student body going forward that will accelerate our program to enable graduation by October 2023.  We have requested the October timeframe so that any student falling short by a credit or two will have ample time to make it up within the accreditation timeframe of December 16, 2023.

Of course, this request recognizes that there be no financial loss to the University and all funds be paid as originally committed.  We will meet the University’s requirement of a complete 5 years’ worth of tuition as originally outlined. According to our calculations, if we are accelerated soon, we would have 6 semesters left at 17 weeks per semester, which of course includes observation for major holidays like; 2 weeks of Christmas, 1 week of Easter, and a 2-week summer break.

We understand this will require a significant rework of the schedule. We are confident that with a commitment on both sides to accomplish the original goal, we can get it done. Your student body is willing to make whatever sacrifices are necessary to accomplish the acceleration of the schedule, to include, giving up summer holidays, Christmas, and Easter holidays, and whatever else is needed to keep us on track. We are hopeful you can gain similar commitments from your staff.   

It will be a challenging journey, but it will become a memorable accomplishment that will reflect uniquely on you, your staff and the successful graduates practicing in California.  This extraordinary achievement will embed a lifelong recognition of you, your staff, and the University’s efforts to make it happen in the hearts of your graduating class of December 16, 2023.

We are confident that you and the University cares deeply for the success of its students and will make every effort to accommodate our request.   

We thank you dearly and hope to hear from you soon.

Respectfully,
Groups S1910 & S1911
