Geisel-NSS Student Conversations

Stay tuned for an announcement of the 2023-2024 Geisel-NSS Student Conversations Program beginning in the fall term. See link in box above.

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 and AI Scholars

Medicine and AI Scholars is a student-led, interdisciplinary initiative created to spread awareness about the inclusion of artificial intelligence and machine learning in medicine. This growing shift brings advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important to understand both sides to create a more effective healthcare field for the 21st century.

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.
