Dartmouth Medicine seeks to convey the breadth and depth of the education, research, and patient-care activities of DMS and DHMC; to serve as a publication of historical record; to stimulate thought and discussion on issues in medicine and medical education; and to reflect the range of opinions and activities among Dartmouth medical students, faculty, and alumni. Among abbreviations used regularly in these pages are DMS (Dartmouth Medical School), DHMC (Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center), MHMH (Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital), DC (Dartmouth College), and HS (housestaff). The opinions of contributors do not necessarily reflect those of DMS or DHMC.

Dartmouth Medicine is published four times a year—in Fall (September), Winter (December), Spring (March), and Summer (June). It is produced using a Macintosh G3 and Quark XPress 4.04.

We are happy to send Dartmouth Medicine—on a complimentary basis —to anyone who is interested in the subjects that are covered in the magazine. Write us if you'd like to be added to our rolls. We regret, however, that the complimentary subscription offer can be extended only to addresses within North America.
