Position Purpose

This position reports to the Director of the Office of Student Academic Success & Accessibility Services, at the Geisel School of Medicine. Working closely under the guidance of the Director, the Assistant Director will monitor, plan, develop, organize and deliver comprehensive learning programs and disability services for Geisel’s MPH and MD programs, and other new Geisel education programs as they evolve, and with an emphasis on the early identification and treatment of academic issues for students who face learning barriers due to the pace, writing, quantitative, and/or executive functioning requirements of the MPH and MD curriculums.


The Audrey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine (Geisel) at Dartmouth, was established in Hanover, New Hampshire in 1797 and, to this day, strives to improve the lives of the people it serves: students, patients, and local and global communities. As one of America’s top medical schools, the Geisel School of Medicine is committed to creating new generations of diverse leaders who will help solve our most vexing challenges in health care.

The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth is located in the neighboring towns of Hanover and Lebanon in the Upper Connecticut River Valley on the NH and VT border. Dartmouth is surrounded by a vibrant, academic, and professional community offering excellent public schools, a lively arts scene, a rural setting with great natural beauty, and delicious local produce and artisanal foods. For those who enjoy the city, Boston, New York City, and Montreal are within a few hours’ drive.
