At the Audrey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, the nation's fourth oldest medical school, students learn from renowned teachers, clinicians, and researchers who are transforming medicine in practice and in policy. Students start interacting with patients week one, Year One, and gain hands-on clinical experience in a program uniquely designed to expose them to a broad array of patient populations and training sites, from Dartmouth's affiliated state-of-the-art medical center, to urban hospitals to health clinics in Africa.
Geisel School of Medicine students have the flexibility to explore their calling, whether they are headed for a career in medical research and teaching, subspecialty practice, primary care, or healthcare policy. Our students—having studied both the science and the art of medicine at a school with a 200-year history of innovation—can go anywhere and often become the leaders of innovation and change in health care. Because at the Geisel School of Medicine, there are no barriers to becoming the physician, the scientist, and the person you want to be. There are only opportunities.
