Dartmouth undergraduates will soon have far greater access to the groundbreaking research and elite training offered by The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, thanks to a generous gift from Eric Eichler ’57.
“For several years, we have been exploring how best to create opportunities for Dartmouth undergraduates,” says Elliott Fisher, director of The Dartmouth Institute. “With Eric Eichler’s visionary gift, we will be able to work closely with our colleagues in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences to build a program that will enable students to understand the challenges facing health care systems around the world, and to begin to think critically about what will be required to transform health care.”
Set to launch this year, the Health Care Leadership Initiative includes plans for an annual summer program, fellowship opportunities, and both co-curricular and for-credit courses.
