Raising the bar
The financial goal of the Transforming Medicine Campaign for Dartmouth Medical School and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is to raise $250 million by 2009. Even more far-reaching is its goal of "raising the bar" in medicine.Of questioning assumptions—respecting tradition but not following it blindly. Of erasing boundaries—translating science from the lab bench to the bedside by connecting researchers with clinicians.Of creating solutions to the nation's most critical health-care issues. Of transforming medicine.

Campaign update
The Transforming Medicine Campaign has reached an exciting milestone, with gift commitments now surpassing $200 million. The Transforming Medicine gala in mid-May epitomized the energy and momentum driving the Campaign and itself raised over $1.1 million for the C. Everett Koop Medical Science Complex.The Campaign total to date includes 15 gift commitments of $1 million or more.These lead gifts are supporting a variety of campaign priorities—including endowed scholarships and professorships; cancer care and research at Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center; special programs at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth; innovative mental health initiatives; palliative-care efforts; and the collaborative, translational research that will eventually move into the Koop Medical Science Complex.
