Geisel School of Medicine to restructure, cut 30 jobs: 6 things to know

A restructuring of Dartmouth College's Geisel School of Medicine, based in Hanover, N.H., will eliminate about 30 jobs, but also include job offers to hundreds of Geisel employees who will be losing their places on the college payroll, according to a Valley News report.

Here are six things to know about the restructuring.

1. Lebanon, N.H.-based Dartmouth-Hitchcock, which has ties to Dartmouth College but a separate corporate and financial existence, plans to offer jobs to 285 Geisel employees.

2. The former Geisel employees — 182 physicians, researchers and staff in the psychiatry department and 103 faculty and staff involved in clinical research — will meet the new boss July 1, according to Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

3. However, Geisel Interim Dean Duane Compton told the Valley News Geisel expects that 30 individuals may not have employment offers from Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

4. Geisel and Dartmouth first outlined a restructuring plan in September that they said would move hundreds of jobs to Dartmouth-Hitchcock and eliminate a smaller but at the time unspecified number of others, according to the report.

5. As part of the restructuring, Dartmouth-Hitchcock will become grantee on federal and non-federal support for research.

6. Over the next months, Dartmouth-Hitchcock managers will focus on creating the administrative infrastructure to oversee the expanded research portfolio of its physician faculty, according to the report.
