Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine is the fourth oldest medical school in the US and comprises 17 clinical and basic science departments. It offers the MD degree as well as graduate education in biomedical sciences, public health and health care delivery science. Its Thayer School of Engineering is also one of the oldest of its kind in the States.

While every spring brings the Dartmouth Pow-Wow, which draws hundreds of participants from across the Northeast to celebrate and experience Native American culture and history.
