Table 1

Guided reflection paper prompt

1. What assumptions did you have prior to starting the extramural rotation?
 1. Assumptions about the program (beyond the populations and the type of dental care you will provide)
 2. Assumptions about the populations
 3. Your thoughts about working with those populations (I’ll enjoy it/hate it/am scared of it because…)
 4. Type of dental care you will provide
2. For each of the four categories, describe 1 or 2 experiences you had during the rotation that fulfilled your assumptions and 1 or 2 experiences that challenged your assumptions.
