The Dermatones

What started as an idea among first years at the Geisel School of Medicine seeking a musical and creative outlet has become a sometimes serious, sometimes silly group of medical and graduate students who just love to sing. In the fall of 1993, the Dermatones debuted in Gross Anatomy with "Only You," dedicated to their exhausted classmates and faithful faculty.

The Dermatones currently perform a cappella arrangements at a variety of campus events, such as Heart Rounds and the Anatomy Memorial Service. We also work with other service groups, such as the Memory Cafe, and have sung on the wards at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, in area nursing homes, and at Alumni and Trustee functions.

Two songs from our current repertoire are below.

Long Time Traveler

Parting Glass
