Dr. Vincent Pellegrini graduated from Dartmouth College summa cum laude with a double major in biology and economics, and received his medical degree from the Dartmouth Medical School with award of the Dean’s Valedictory Medal. He was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Omega Alpha honor societies.
