Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship

Message from program leadership

Dear Doctor,

Dr. Terrence Welch Thank you for your interest in the Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Our clinical and academic training prepares graduates to provide competent, evidence-based, and ethical care for patients with cardiovascular disease, and to pursue careers in clinical practice, education, and research. We make your development and career goals our priority, and work to tailor your training pathway accordingly. Our general cardiovascular fellowship provides strong foundational training in all cardiovascular disciplines and the flexibility to develop a broad skillset for clinical practice and to pursue academic interests. Our dedication to fellows’ professional development is shared at all levels of our Heart and Vascular Center’s leadership.

Dr. Gregory DadekianWe have a longstanding tradition of providing outstanding cardiovascular training, and we owe that success to our tremendous faculty, busy and state-of-the-art facilities, and academic resources. Dartmouth-Hitchcock provides care to a catchment area of over 1.5 million patients living in New Hampshire and Vermont. We are fortunate to partner with Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth (founded in 1797) and the White River Junction Veterans Administration Medical Center to facilitate clinical training and additional educational and research opportunities. The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice is also located on-site and provides tremendous academic resources and options for advanced degrees. The Tuck School of Business and Thayer School of Engineering provide additional opportunities for collaboration.

We take great pride in our fellows. They are a diverse group of talented individuals with wide-ranging professional interests and goals. We view our fellows as important colleagues and strive to help them find positions that will help them advance their career. Feedback from fellows is sought regularly and used to drive improvements in the program.

The Upper Connecticut River Valley, in which Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth College are located, is a fabulous place to live. The natural beauty of Northern New England, coupled with the sophistication that an Ivy League college brings, creates a uniquely rejuvenating environment. Our Fellows have easy access to abundant year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, including hiking, cycling, paddling, and skiing.

We can confidently say that Dartmouth-Hitchcock and the Upper Connecticut River Valley provide an ideal environment in which to train well while living well. We appreciate your interest in our program and look forward to meeting you!
