Dartmouth prides itself on its collaborative and collegiate environment. Our faculty are both highly distinguished and accessible to trainees, with informal, personalized, one-to-one instruction readily available to all our residents. Residents at Dartmouth get in-depth exposure to tertiary and community care, advanced neuroscience, interventional psychiatry, psychotherapy, specialty clinics, and more. Teaching medical students, scholarship and mentorship are also plentiful.
We offer a 5-year combined adult/child program (no more ERAS!), and a research track. Home to several post-residency fellowships, including geriatrics, addiction, sleep medicine and pain medicine, we also offer an opportunity to gain a master’s in public health through our Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency, a popular choice for many of our residents. Many other health advocacy programs and research opportunities are also available through various programs, such as the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI), Dartmouth Center for Healthcare Delivery Science, National Center for PTSD, Center for Neuroscience, Psychiatric research group and the Synergy Center.
The Psychiatry Department recently established a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee to improve awareness and training in these important topics. Planned activities include regular Journal Clubs and Grand Rounds focused on diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism as well as updating the residency curriculum to ensure broad and deep coverage of the effects of systemic racism on mental health. Residents rotate through a variety of clinical settings exposing them to a socio-economically and culturally diverse range of patients across Northern New England. Residents also have the opportunity to work in a resident-founded Transgender Mental Health clinic as an elective rotation.
