The Department of Psychiatry of Dartmouth-Hitchcock and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth is a major provider of psychiatric care in Northern New England. The Department provides direct psychiatric services at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medicine Center, its affiliates and community group practices, and at a number of other sites, including Hanover Psychiatry, the New Hampshire Hospital (in Concord, NH), and the White River Junction VA Medical Center (in White River Junction, Vermont). In addition, the Department has an affiliation with West Central Behavioral Health (Lebanon, NH) and other community mental health centers in the region for training and research.
The Department has training programs in psychiatry and psychology, and fellowship programs in child and adolescent psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, behavioral medicine, neuropsychology and neuroimaging. In addition, the Department is a site of translational research: twenty-three members of the Department are currently investigators on externally funded research grants or contracts—from federal, state, foundation or industry sources. These investigators, along with dozens of their collaborators locally and across the country, are engaged in cutting edge science, ranging from animal research, to neuroimaging, to proof of concept clinical trials, effectiveness studies and health services research. The major areas of research focus within the Department include: schizophrenia and other serious mental illness, substance use disorders, mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, traumatic brain injury, ADHD, Alzheimers Disease, psycho-oncology, executive functioning and multiple sclerosis.
I encourage you to look through our website to learn more about our work to serve those individuals within our region and beyond who have psychiatric disorders, to train new practitioners and investigators, and to advance the field by expanding new knowledge.
