Geisel-NSS Student Conversations

The Spring Term 2021 Geisel-NSS Student Conversations Program application deadline has passed.

Clinical Conversations

Clinical Conversations, a weekly virtual shadowing series in which DHMC physicians from a variety of specialties will discuss real patient cases from their practices with pre-health students. Click HERE to learn more about the program. Come back later in the term for updates.

Medicine and Justice Scholars Series

A student-led initiative created to bring about awareness and have conversations about racism, gender, sexuality, and discrimination in healthcare and health education. Often, these are hard topics to discuss, but it’s important to learn about these realities in order to create a more equitable healthcare community.

Medicine in Motion Dartmouth Undergraduate

While caring for patients, healthcare workers must care for the vulnerable and sick. Medicine in Motion is a student-led group that advocates and studies mental health and burnout among healthcare professions while building healthy work/life habits through fitness, wellness, and community.

Coming Soon in Spring 2021

Other Pre-Health Resources


An NSS column that seeks to expose pre-health students to the intersection of medicine, ethics, and humanism. By looking to relevant opinion pieces in leading medical journals and crafting bite-sized summaries of recent debates in these spheres, it is our hope to spark interest and discussion to foster a deeper understanding of medicine.

Pre-Vet Society

The Dartmouth Pre-Veterinarian Society is a student sub-organization within the Nathan Smith Society focused on serving students interested in careers in veterinarian medicine.

Pre Dental Society

The Dartmouth Pre-Dental Society is a student sub-organization within the Nathan Smith Society focused on serving students interested in careers in dental medicine.
