Dartmouth fourth-year medical student Dipak Ramkumar (right) and a team of orthopaedic surgeons working on split-thickness skin graft of the foot for a pediatric patient who had sustained a traumatic injury in the work environment. This photograph was taken at an orthopedic free clinic just outside Chennai, India aimed at delivering biomedical orthopaedic care for the underprivileged.
Note from Dipak:
The Geisel School of Medicine has allowed me to realize my dream of becoming an orthopaedic traumatologist. I recently matched at Dartmouth-Hitchock Medical Center to pursue my training in orthopaedic surgery. Through the mentorship, guidance, and opportunities offer to students here at Geisel, I have been able to customize and direct my learning in the principles of fracture management. I am forever grateful to all the faculty and staff at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth that have facilitate these experiences, which reflect my interests in global health.
