- Vision of Dartmouth-Hitchcock

Dartmouth-Hitchcock is an integrated academic medical center consisting of four distinct entities: Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic, Veterans Affairs Medical Center (White River Junction, VA), and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital is the sponsoring institution of record for all accredited Graduate Medical Education (GME) training programs and has supported such programs since 1895.

Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital and the integrated partners commit to ensuring that all ACGME-accredited programs remain in substantial compliance with the ACGME’s institutional and program-specific requirements. Furthermore, Dartmouth-Hitchcock strives for continuous improvement in the effectiveness of all its GME programs through ongoing assessment of educational and medical practice. In this way, Dartmouth-Hitchcock leads transformation of Graduate Medical Education in our region, helps set new standards at the national level, and supports our vision of achieving the healthiest population possible.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s four component institutions pledge appropriate resources to support GME trainees and their educational environment, including an organized administrative system to oversee all residency and fellowship programs through the activities of the Associate Dean and Office of Graduate Medical Education as directed by the Graduate Medical Education Committee. In addition, Dartmouth-Hitchcock is dedicated to the proposition that advancement of patient care is supported by a strong educational environment and, as such, is specifically committed to the ongoing development and support of a strong teaching faculty.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s commitment to conduct and support Graduate Medical Education programs furthers our combined missions of providing the highest quality care to our patients and educating future generations of physicians to serve our community, the Northern New England region, and beyond.
