Learning the roots and rewards of rural primary care medicine while serving American Indian populations. That’s what Geisel medical students experience during valuable clerkships in places like Fort Defiance, Arizona.
Dartmouth researchers have found that African American women are 55 percent less likely to receive breast reconstruction after mastectomy regardless of where they received their care.
Geisel post-doctoral researcher Elaina M. Melton, PhD, has received a prestigious NIH fellowship for emerging scientists that will support her research on two cholesterol-related diseases, atherosclerosis and xanthomatosis.
A highly competitive grant from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund will lay the foundation for better treatments for invasive fungal infections.
In the second of a four-part series examining Geisel’s work in American Indian and Alaska Native communities, students reflect on a special research experience within an American Indian housing development in Minneapolis, and the invaluable mentoring of Geisel alumni in Minnesota.
Doctors trained in locations with less intensive (and expensive) practice patterns appear to consistently be better at making clinical decisions that spare patients unnecessary and excessive medical care, according to a new study in JAMA Internal Medicine.
Dartmouth researchers explored the type and number of connections in transcription factor networks (TFNs) to evaluate the role assortativity plays on robustness in a study published in PLOS Computational Biology in August. The study found that the assortativity signature contributes to a network’s resilience against mutations.
Working with American Indian communities in northern Minnesota, the Geisel School of Medicine’s alternative spring break program offers valuable primary care experiences for medical students.
Recent growth in health care spending for commercially insured individuals is due primarily to increases in prices for medical services, rather than increased use, according to a new study led by researchers at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, published today in the American Journal of Managed Care.
