Geisel School of Medicine

Dartmouth is located in the picturesque Upper Connecticut River Valley on the New Hampshire and Vermont border; a vibrant, academic and professional community offering excellent schools, lively arts, and an unmatched quality of life in a beautiful, rural setting. Amenities associated with urban areas in Boston MA, Burlington VT, and Montreal QC are all within a few hours drive.


As the fourth oldest medical school in the nation, Geisel has a long history of innovation in the foundational sciences that are central to our understanding of health and disease. In collaboration with our nearby clinical partners, Dartmouth-Hitchcock and the White River Junction Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Geisel conducts top-tier research within a diverse and close-knit community where students and faculty engage as partners in learning and discovery. Our school’s intimate scale and proximity to others on the Dartmouth campus allow for the free flow of ideas and easy collaborations across disciplines with colleagues in the liberal arts, engineering, and business.
