A geometric approach to quantum mechanics which is formulated in terms of Finsler geometry is developed. It is shown that quantum mechanics can be formulated in terms of Finsler configuration space trajectories which obey Newton-like evolution but in the presence of an additional kind of potential. This additional quantum potential which was obtained first by Bohm has the consequence of contributing to the forces driving the system. This geometric picture accounts for many aspects of quantum dynamics and leads to a more natural interpretation. It is found for example that dynamics can be accounted for by incorporating quantum effects into the geometry of space-time.
