Healthcare Policy, Innovation, and Delivery

This Design Your Own LLC was offered in 2016-2017 and is no longer available.

In today’s healthcare climate, patient needs and economic realities collide. Unless we work together to effect positive change, health systems in many countries will continue to see increasing costs and decreasing quality. 

About the Community

Fortunately, reforms are already happening, and Dartmouth has been an early driver and proponent of them. This healthcare transformation harnesses the talents and energies of many diverse, extraordinary individuals working together to advance the health and well-being of every individual. This Living Learning Community, which is a Design Your Own LLC during the 2016-2017 academic year, thrives off the energy of this revolution and empowers residents to engage in constructive healthcare-themed dialogue with each other, faculty experts, and guest speakers.

Activities range from student-led discussions and activities to dinners with various faculty members. In addition, there are off-campus opportunities, such as field trips to DHMC that provide a hands-on learning experience about various aspects of healthcare. We are looking for thoughtful, passionate residents willing to put into action the ideas that will improve healthcare. As healthcare solutions require multidisciplinary teamwork, students of all majors and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
