“The world’s troubles are your troubles.” Those famous lines from a 1946 speech by John Sloan Dickey, then the president of Dartmouth College, have served as a reminder to the Dartmouth community of the importance of being engaged globally. That’s a calling that the students and faculty of the medical school have answered.
Many students arrive at the medical school having already taken part in global health activities. But regardless of past experience, there is an abundance of opportunities for interested students to become part of Dartmouth’s tradition of working in communities around the world.
The medical school has active collaborations with partners in countries both near and far, including Tanzania, Rwanda, Kosovo, Haiti, Peru, and elsewhere.
