About Dartmouth's Health Service

About The Health Service

The Dartmouth College Health Service believes that good health is a vital part of every student's college experience. We are here to provide high-quality care and services for Dartmouth students and to develop and promote health education information for students to maintain a healthy lifestyle during college and in the years ahead.

We are state-licensed and affiliated with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). Our staff will assist with referrals to DHMC or other community providers for services not available through the Health Service. Students requiring immediate medical attention when the Health Service is closed are directed to local urgent care or the DHMC Emergency Department. The cost of DHMC and other non-Health Service care is billed by the provider to the student.
