The Dartmouth Institute is the health services research and education center at Dartmouth College under the prestigious Geisel School of Medicine. 

We are made up of a diverse group of scholars, researchers, clinicians, students, and administrators with a wide array of interests and aims. But one thing unites us: We care deeply about health and health care. Working in partnership with individuals and organizations around the country, and throughout the world, we are striving to improve population health, reduce disparities, and create high-performing, sustainable health systems.

Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is a member of the Ivy League and consistently ranks among the world’s leading academic institutions. The Dartmouth Institute is the place for you if you want to: use data analysis to impact policy, learn new quality improvement methods that will enable you to introduce meaningful change into an organization or system, or translate research findings into action to advance population health. 

Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), Dartmouth’s MPH degree program is offered in two formats: 11 months on the Dartmouth campus, recognized as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country, or 22 months online with a week-long on-campus session three times per year in which you’ll spend time exchanging ideas and insights with colleagues, classmates, and Dartmouth Institute’s pioneering faculty.
