six helpful hints
Not “premed”Six “Helpful Hints”

1. Dartmouth does not have a specific pre-med or pre-health curriculum.Major in what you enjoy and are interested in, but bear in mind that you must be able to demonstrate scientific aptitude and excellence. A wide experience in the humanities and social sciences is a real asset to a health career, as well.

six helpful hints6
Six “Helpful Hints”
  • Most Dartmouth students initiate application to med/vet/dental school at end of senior year or as alums, rather than spring of junior year, creating one or more “gap years”.

EVERYONE SHOULD CONSIDER THIS OPTION TO SEE WHAT IMPACT THIS WOULD HAVE ON YOUR DARTMOUTH EXPERIENCE

(examples: course flexibility, FSP/LSA, curricular/major options, avoiding “doubling up”, building your credentials, athletics)!

Later is

greater?

5. Learn to write well! The process of med/vet/dental school application will emphasize your verbal reasoning skills and ability to write well-structured and reasoned essays (MCAT; applications to schools). In addition to working with professors, use the Student Center for Research, Writing, and Information Technology (RWiT) whenever you have the opportunity.
