We are excited to host our second Department of Surgery Alumni Reunion to be held in Hanover/Lebanon August 26-27, 2022. Former surgical trainees from Dartmouth-Hitchcock of all specialties and all years and former students of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth who trained in surgery elsewhere are invited and encouraged to attend.

We are following the well-received format of our inaugural reunion in 2017 with both department-wide and specialty-specific activities, as described in detail below. Based on alumni feedback, we moved up the date of this reunion so that everyone could enjoy the many outdoor activities available in late August. The schedule provides free time on Saturday afternoon and all-day Sunday to get together with friends for the activities of your choice. So, reach out to your alumni and faculty friends, encourage them to attend, and plan some hiking, kayaking, golf, biking, or whatever you enjoyed most when you were at Dartmouth! As people register, we will post their names on the reunion website, so you'll know who's coming. Several sections will be planning special events during the weekend and will be reaching out to their alumni who register. This promises to be a great reunion, so please make plans to join us.
