For Future Leaders in Health and Health Care
Whether you are interested in working as a clinician, researcher, policy analyst, healthcare consultant, or advocate, Dartmouth Health Care Foundations will provide you with a strong foundation to become a creative and compassionate leader in health care.
Healthcare is facing unprecedented challenges that require a different method of developing expertise. The current approach continues to promote a crisis of cynicism and demoralization that begins in the introductory stages of pre-health education. Through a new approach to pre-health education, we seek to disrupt this trajectory.
Watch our story unfold:
An innovative, liberal arts approach to pre-health education
During the week-long summer intensive program on the campus of Dartmouth College, students will grapple with questions of advocacy, explore empathy and the culture of biomedicine, and reflect on how humanistic approaches provide an orientation toward compassionate engagement and serve as a guard against cynicism and fatigue in the complex work of health care. Sessions are led by top Dartmouth faculty, global health leaders, and clinicians to explore linkages between the humanities, social sciences, public health, and medicine. The program is open to all undergraduate students or recent graduates from any institution. Learn more
The Summer 2020 session of Dartmouth Health Care Foundations will take place July 13-17, 2020.
