What the Health Careers Institute at Dartmouth Offers
The faculty at the Health Careers Institute at Dartmouth includes health care professionals from the Dartmouth community, as well as colleagues from other educational and health institutions.
Participants are provided the opportunity to learn about various disciplines and types of settings where health care is delivered. The areas students will explore range from direct health care (medicine, therapy, medical research, etc.), to public health and health policy. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and have a robust dialog with presenters, HCID faculty and their peers about health careers and explore what the health care system may look like in the future … and how they can potentially bring innovation into the system.
Classroom instruction, a team-based research project, and dialogue with faculty and health profession students are all part of the experience.
Students live in a dorm on Dartmouth College campus during their time at Health Careers Institute at Dartmouth. In addition, time is dedicated to open discussion around the college application process.
I met a lot of people that I feel will make good connections in the future. The mentors were so knowledgeable and truly helped.”
