Six Reasons To Join QBS at Dartmouth

QBS Community

We have a thriving and tight-knit community of students engaged in graduate education and encourage interaction among students and faculty in all graduate programs. QBS program members participate in several active seminar series with speakers drawn from a host of nationally and internationally recognized research institutions. Informal interactions among program students and faculty take place during journal clubs and during program-sponsored annual retreats.

Interdisciplinary Program

The program is interdepartmental with numerous collaborations existing between QBS members and those in other graduate programs at Dartmouth. Our philosophy is that the modern biomedical scientist must be able to speak more than one language to successfully collaborate in a highly multidisciplinary environment. Students trained through the PhD and MS programs will be versed in bioinformatics, biostatistics and epidemiology.

Career Opportunities

QBS is committed to ensuring the success of our graduate students by training them to take on leadership roles in academia and industry. Besides the career placement opportunities offered by Dartmouth, QBS holds corporate recruiting seminars with industry partners, exclusively open to QBS students.
