The Geisel Experience
Graduating Students Share Their Stories

Hanover, NH—Each spring, a diverse group of more than 80 newly minted physicians graduate from Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. They are part of a proud 216-year tradition that includes a legacy of more than 4,500 alumni. Inspired physician leaders, they are poised to solve our most pressing challenges in health care.

Although many have achieved their childhood dream of becoming a doctor, others took a circuitous path. But their goals are the same—to improve the lives of their patients and communities.

Jake Stevens
"I have no regrets about Geisel—for me it was about embracing the uniqueness of the community."

Laura Ostapenko
"To leave a place better than you found it is the most important lesson I learned at Dartmouth."

Ellen Stein
"It's great to know that everyone at Geisel is invested in you."

Adina Fischer
"My classmates are so smart and driven, they really pushed me to challenge myself."

Ben Grass
"The strong sense of community here is remarkable—people are deeply committed to the school and to student well-being."
