Emergency Medicine Residency

Director's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Emergency Medicine Residency Program. Our Vision is to produce clinically outstanding emergency medicine physicians who can practice effectively in any ED setting from inner city to suburban to rural. This is truly an amazing place to live, train, and practice Emergency Medicine.

As a DH-EM Resident, you will benefit from an outstanding balance of clinical rotations, didactics, simulation, and scholarly activity. And, you’ll get to live in beautiful Northern New England. As New Hampshire’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock has a breadth of expertise and an extensive referral base. In addition, as a highly-acclaimed tertiary care facility in a rural setting, we provide a unique spectrum of emergency care ranging from rural medicine to highly specialized tertiary services. Our patient acuity rivals that of any inner city: our Case Mix is the second highest in New England and in the top 5% nationally. Our admission rate and critical care rate is more than twice the national average.

Our unique spectrum of experiences includes inner city trauma at Maryland Shock Trauma, urban pediatric emergency medicine in Manchester, tertiary care at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, rural emergency medicine at Cheshire Medical Center-DH in Keene, and exposure to emergency medicine at critical access hospitals via DHART aeromedicine. You will truly experience the full breadth of EM at Dartmouth.

Our Emergency Medicine faculty is highly devoted to bedside teaching with unique interests and expertise in resuscitation, sepsis, EMS, rural emergency medicine, telemedicine, international emergency medicine, wilderness medicine, ultrasound, informatics, quality improvement and health care delivery science. Fully half of our faculty has additional graduate degrees and/or fellowship training.
