Diagnostic Radiology Program Overview
Welcome to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program! Our program offers a unique blend of first-rate radiology training at a state of the art facility in a location conducive to a wonderful quality of life.
The size of our program, with 20 residents and 5 fellows, allows for a resident-centered experience, combining the best of academic subspecialty level teaching and research with hands-on active learning. The faculty’s commitment to resident teaching, led by several nationally recognized educators, creates an ideal environment for resident learning and growth. We have a 100% pass rate for the both the ABR Core and Certifying Exams. Our residents also enjoy success in obtaining highly competitive fellowship positions for subspecialty training.
Our collegial atmosphere involves residents in all aspects of the training program including curriculum design and resident selection. The timing and format of the ABR exam allows for a flexible, individualized fourth year of training with resident input a major driving force in the design of this year. In addition to allowing residents further training in clinical areas of interest, the fourth year allows elective opportunities in global health, radiology leadership/business, and informatics, as well as a clinician-educator pathway, community radiology elective, and dedicated research time. This innovative approach sets our program apart from others. Most recently, we have introduced a longitudinal radiology resident educator's track for residents in their second or third year who have a strong interest in medical education and academia.
In keeping abreast with the changes in Interventional Radiology training, we have an Integrated IR residency program. We also have an Early Specialization in Interventional Radiology (ESIR) program.
The input of our residents is highly valued in our selection process to ensure the recruitment of residents who are academically skilled, share our vision, and are team players.
As part of the Dartmouth College community, our residents have ready access to a variety of cultural activities including theatre, dance, music and film as well as a full spectrum of college sports. Our residents experience the best of what Northern New England has to offer with easy access to farmers' markets, country fairs and spectacular outdoor recreational activities including skiing, hiking, cycling, boating, fishing and gardening.
We are very proud of the excellent clinical training and unique opportunities our program provides which prepare our residents for a successful career in academia or private practice.
