Other Health Professions

The majority of information on our website relates to the process of preparing for and applying to medical school to receive a MD degree, because it reflects the interests of most Pre-Health Dartmouth students and alumni. Of course, there are several other paths to entering a health profession where one can work with patients, conduct research, or teach the next generation of health care workers.
