What do we offer?
To practicing healthcare providers:
Continuing education that is responsive to their needs and interests, emerging health issues, and changes in the healthcare landscape.
We meet the learners where they are, so they can learn and receive continuing education credits in a way that best aligns with their learning needs and their busy schedules.
Educational programs are offered at times and locations convenient to practitioners, and range from short “lunch and learn” workshops to multi-day conferences.
CME, nursing, social work, and other professional credits are available.
To young people:
Opportunities to learn about health care and health careers in
The residential institute Health Careers Institute at Dartmouth on the Dartmouth College campus.
