A balanced life
Yes, becoming a doctor requires long hours of hard work. But at the Geisel School that doesn't require you to sacrifice outside interests, a healthy lifestyle, or opportunities for social, personal, and emotional growth. The culture in Hanover fosters a balanced lifestyle. In fact most of the people here—students, doctors, researchers, nurses, residents—make sure they find the time for other interests.
The Student Affairs Office and the Society program along with a variety of the student initiated programs/groups are key resources that can assist you in meeting the challenges of medical school while enjoying a balanced, fulfilling life. Assistance comes in many ways: through individual advising, mentoring, or peer relationships; through groups focused on professional or personal interests; through religious or spiritual connections; through service and advocacy; or through recreation or artistic pursuits.
