MD Program

MD Program Mission

At the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, we graduate the complete physician—one who excels in the basic sciences, delivers outstanding clinical care, discovers and shares new knowledge, and works to improve systems of healthcare delivery.

  • Our curriculum builds the practice of medicine on a foundation of basic science.
  • We develop outstanding clinical skills through experiential learning that spans all four years of training. Geisel students are trained in compassionate, patient- and family-centered care that addresses the “whole” patient.
  • Community service is an integral part of the medical student experience and our students participate in a remarkable array of opportunities to serve our communities.
  • Health care delivery science is integral to our curriculum and is taught throughout the first two years of the curriculum.
  • Our students learn in and are part of a strong, supportive community.
