In addition to our standard training curriculum, many psychiatry residents participate in the opportunities listed below.
The Center for Neuroscience
This interdisciplinary group focuses on education and research, drawing on basic science, clinical, and cognitive behavioral neuroscience. Psychiatry residents may work in both basic science and applied research settings with outstanding mentors.
Dartmouth Center for Healthcare Delivery Science
The Center for Health Care Delivery Science represents an aggressive collaboration across all the schools at Dartmouth—undergraduate and graduate—and its affiliated health system, Dartmouth-Hitchcock. The joint commitment of the College and its affiliated medical center will facilitate research, education—and very importantly, implementation in clinical practice to improve the care patients receive.
The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI)
In addition to formal programs that may be pursued through TDI, psychiatry residents may take select courses, free of charge, on a variety of topics (e.g. Research Methodology, Microsystems).

This two-year training program is a popular adjunct to the psychiatry training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Participants earn a master's degree in public health, in a program that focuses on policy issues, outcome measures, and quality improvement related to psychiatry.
The National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
This center, located at the White River Junction, Vermont, brings together expertise in research and clinical care in PTSD.
VA Quality Scholars Program (VAQS)
This year long fellowship program has also been utilized by psychiatry residents to gain experience in outcomes research and quality improvement for health care systems.
SYNERGY – Clinical and Translational Science Institute
The SYNERGY Center allows for a variety of research resources to be organized in one center, providing for training and resources that residents may access to support career development in psychiatric research.
