The virtual program format will be case-based with each day offering a different patient and health care system.

What the Health Careers Institute at Dartmouth Offers
The faculty at the Health Careers Institute includes health care professionals from the Dartmouth community, as well as colleagues from other educational and health institutions around the country.
Participants are provided the opportunity in a case-based cohort structure to learn about various fields of health care. The areas students will explore range from public health, health policy, and direct health care (medicine, nursing, therapy, etc.) while providing them the ability to discuss with HCID faculty and their peers about what health care may look like in the future … and how they can potentially bring innovation into the current system.
Virtual classroom instruction, a team-based project, and dialogue with faculty and health profession students are all part of the experience.
Time is dedicated to teaching students about the college application, admissions, and student experience.
We want to extend our sincere hope that all of you and your families are safe, healthy, and comfortable given the pandemic circumstances we are living in.
I met a lot of people that I feel will make good connections in the future. The mentors were so knowledgeable and truly helped.”
