Cardiology fellows do most of their training at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center main campus in Lebanon, NH. This state of the art facility opened in 1991 and has been substantially expanded since that time. The campus includes the inpatient hospital towers, operating rooms, diagnostic laboratories and critical care areas of Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic offices, the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Borwell Research building and conference facilities. The only other training site for cardiology fellows is the VA Medical Center in White River Junction VT. The VA rotation is a noninvasive consultative cardiology and ambulatory experience directed by VA-based cardiology faculty.
