MD/MPH & MD/MS
Students at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth have the opportunity to add the one-year MPH or MS degree to their curriculum, typically after the completion of their third year of medical school.
Each student develops competency in six broad areas in medical school: medical knowledge; clinical skills; interpersonal and communications skills; professionalism; personal assessment and improvement in the practice environment; and managing patient care in a complex health care system. When combined with the MPH or the MS program, the MD becomes a richer curriculum where students engage in a thought process that will bring the health care system to the next level. Such students ask challenging questions, seek provocative answers, and develop enlightened solutions.
When you leave the Geisel School of Medicine and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, you will have the tools, skills and attitudes necessary for a lifetime of learning and for improving health and health care.
