A total of 191 new students matriculated in DMS's five degree programs at the start of the 2011-12 academic year.

Facts: The Med School's five educational offerings are in this slideshow, along with some statistics about each one's entering class (as well as some facts, both interesting and amusing, about the new students in each program).

The M.D. and M.D.-Ph.D. programs make up the largest cohort, but about the same total number of students are enrolled in the other four programs—about half of those in the M.P.H. and M.S. programs of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.

New: One of the five programs is brand new this year: three students are in the inaugural class of a program in quantitative biomedical sciences. An interdisciplinary Ph.D. program, it encompasses work in bioinformatics, biostatistics, and molecular epidemiology. Dr. Jason Moore, a professor of genetics, is the director of the new program.

Members of the DMS faculty are also teaching in a brand new Dartmouth College degree program, in health-care delivery science; for insight into that program's first class, read the article "New program aims to 'make an impact tomorrow'".
