About the Area

Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth are located in the rural Upper Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. 

It is a picturesque area known for its natural beauty, low crime rate, and excellent schools.  Within a short distance of the medical center, there are opportunities for an abundance of outdoor recreational activities, including hiking, mountain climbing, biking, skiing, ice skating, and boating.  Residents and fellows also have access to the exceptional athletic facilities at Dartmouth College.  Despite its rural location, the Upper Valley offers a surprising number of cultural opportunities, including music, dance, and theater.
