Dartmouth, the Tuck School of Business & the Geisel School of Medicine
Dartmouth College is focusing its extensive expertise, superior resources, and thought leadership on a commitment to transform health care delivery.
Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is a member of the Ivy League and consistently ranks among the world’s greatest academic institutions. Dartmouth has forged a singular identity for combining its deep commitment to outstanding undergraduate liberal arts and graduate education with distinguished research and scholarship in the Arts and Sciences and its leading graduate schools.
Since 1900, the top-ranked Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth has taught leaders how to shape organizations and industries in response to the to dramatic changes in markets, technology, and policy environments. Today Tuck is also teaching students how to manage uncertainty, advance innovative concepts to operational reality, and to shape organizations to reflect the needs and aspirations of the people they serve.
The Audrey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth has worked to improve health care through education, research, policy reform, quality improvement, and communication. It established a new discipline in the evaluative clinical sciences and has advanced the concepts of informed patient choice and shared decision making. For more than 30 years, data from the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care has formed the foundation for understanding the problems and variations in the U.S. health care system. These and other Geisel insights play a key role in the ongoing debate about health reform and are critical in the work towards ethical, value-based improvements in health care delivery.
