Education at the Geisel School of Medicine
America's fourth oldest medical school, the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth is committed to educating new generations of physicians, researchers and teachers to be leaders of change in creating a healthier, better world. Our outstanding medical educators, low faculty to student ratio, and innovative curriculum have helped make the Geisel School of Medicine one of America's top medical schools.
Geisel maintains a smaller student class size, representing a national and global student body, where individual attention from and opportunities for collaboration with world-renowned faculty abound. The curriculum integrates study of the basic and clinical sciences throughout the four years of medical school and combines small-group discussions, problem-based learning, independent study, and traditional classroom presentations in the right mix to supply focus and support without hindering individual learning and creativity.
Students at Geisel are well traveled, with the opportunity to participate in clinical clerkships and electives around the country and throughout the world, via special urban, rural and global health scholar programs.
Geisel is located on the campus of Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, one of the nation's classic college towns. As part of an Ivy League institution, students at the Geisel School also benefit from access to the talent and resources of Dartmouth.
In addition to the MD degree, the Geisel School of Medicine also offers extensive graduate education programs in the biomedical sciences, as well as public health and health services research.
