What do medical schools look for in an applicant? What makes for a compelling personal statement? How do medical schools build a class?
Join Aileen Panitz, admissions director of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College, for a presentation about Geisel’s program and the general medical school admissions process.
Geisel’s program is designed around the “complete” physician — one who excels in the basic sciences, delivers outstanding clinical care, discovers and shares new knowledge and works to improve systems of healthcare delivery. Experiential learning and clinical work is included across all four years of training, with a focus on compassionate, patient- and family-centered care that addresses the “whole” patient. Geisel strives to foster a strong, supportive community both on and off campus by making community service and health care delivery science integral parts of its curriculum, in order to prepare students for future careers across the entire spectrum of medical practice.

Founded in 2008, GlobeMed at Middlebury College is a chapter of the national organization, GlobeMed, working to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world. In 2010, we began a new partnership with Gardens for Health International, an NGO devoted to providing a sustainable approach to nutritional independence for the people of Rwanda.
The members of GlobeMed at Middlebury work to host fundraising and awareness events on campus during the school year to benefit both our partner and the community at large. We have weekly meetings where we learn about and discuss a topical global health issue, and we also have weekly executive board meeting to plan club meetings, fundraising events, and internal development events. Each summer, we send several chapter members to work on site with Gardens for Health, serving as interns who bring a broad array of academic perspectives and skills to execute our project.
If you’re considering a career in medicine, working as a medical scribe is a great way to familiarize yourself with patient care. Medical scribes work directly with physicians, primarily focused on charting patient encounters in the electronic medical record (EMR). It may seem like an UN-sexy job, but consider this:
- You will be shadowing a physician! Finding a shadowing opportunity can often be a challenge, so this is a great way to get your foot in the door.
- You will be learning a lot about medicine, using the EMR, and as you listen for the signs and symptoms that help the physician come to a diagnosis, you will begin to anticipate what some of these diagnoses might be.
- You will be learning medical language.
- You will have first-hand lessons on how a physician works with patients and can see how trust is developed.
- Most importantly, you will get to listen to the patients.
- What’s more, scribe positions can be full or part time, making it a the perfect job choice for a student.
With all of this in mind, consider a job as a medical scribe.

The company’s tools enable researchers to track huge numbers of people. But doctors do not yet know if it will significantly improve health outcomes.
In 1976, the Harvard School of Public Health and two other major medical institutions started a study on nurses that has become one of the largest and longest research efforts ever conducted on women’s health. They have so far enrolled more than 275,000 participants.
On Thursday, the Harvard school announced an even more ambitious women’s health study, one that aims to enroll a million women over a decade.
The new ingredients allowing the huge scale: Apple’s iPhones, apps and money.
Harvard’s new study is just one of three new large research efforts that Apple is working on with leading academic research centers and health organizations. Together, the studies, which Apple is paying for, show how the Silicon Valley giant and its popular products are reshaping medical research.
To enroll in clinical trials, patients have often had to travel to medical centers to be briefed by researchers and fill out the study paperwork in person. Many studies also follow patients only intermittently, in periodic surveys and visits to hospitals.
