Key Benefits Offered to the Geisel School of Medicine Community-Based Faculty
Geisel Adjunct Faculty Appointments
The application for an Adjunct faculty appointment is initiated once preceptors have taught an On Doctoring student or a clerkship student in Family Medicine, Geriatrics, Pediatrics or OB/GYN. These appointments, along with a DND account (see below) allow access to the benefits provided to preceptors through the Geisel School of Medicine and the College. If you are interested in an appointment, contact OCER or the course coordinator in the course that you teach. Applications require an updated CV and your social security number.
For detailed information on requirements for adjunct appointment and promotions see Guidelines for Appointments and Promotions.

Dartmouth Name Directory Account
A Dartmouth Name Directory (DND) is necessary for access to certain Dartmouth College resources (e.g., full text articles online) and is assigned to preceptors once they receive their adjunct appointment. See Computer Support for more information.
Dartmouth College ID Card
The Dartmouth College ID Card can be obtained once preceptors receive their adjunct appointment. This card serves as the library card to check out materials from all Dartmouth College libraries (Note: electronic library resources require a DND account only). The ID card and ID number ensure access to other benefits, listed below.
The CME vouchers for non D-H preceptors will remain $75.00. If you have precepted a Geisel medical student (between July 2011 and June 2012), you are eligible for two vouchers totaling $150.00 towards attending any event listed on the CCEHS website that has online registration.
Please contact Diane.Chamberlain@dartmouth.edu and she will electronically send your personal voucher code for your registration.
