General Surgery Residency Interview Day

The General Surgery Residency program at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center provides graduated, incremental training in general surgery.

Interview Day overview

Candidates should arrive between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. on the day of their interview.

Interview Day will end at approximately 3:30 p.m. Please see the Sample Candidate Schedule (PDF) for details.

Directions and parking

Please park on the top level of the parking garage and take the stairs or elevator to the Level 4 reception area; Amy will meet you right inside the door.

Location and contact information

Interviews take place in the Department of Surgery Administrative Offices which are located on the 5th floor. Amy Davis, Residency Coordinator, will meet you at the Level 4 reception area to escort you to Surgery M & M at the start of your day.

If you have any trouble on interview day, please email Amy Davis, Residency Coordinator.

Policies and agreement

The ACGME and NRMP require that each applicant to an accredited residency program be provided with the institutional policies regarding eligibility requirements and selection process along with a sample copy of the current residents and fellows agreement of appointment in force during interview season.

Please familiarize yourself with each of the documents linked below. At the end of interview day, you will be asked to sign off indicating you received a copy of these policies and documents. We will have additional copies on hand during interview day, as your signature is a requirement to be eligible for ranking in the Main Match.

Dinner with the residents

The evening before your interview, the residents host an informal reception and dinner at Ramunto's Brick & Brew on South Street in downtown Hanover or Trail Break in White River Junction. This is a fun opportunity for you to get to know the residents in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. I will contact you closer to your scheduled date to request an RSVP via Paperless Post.

Travel and lodging

If flying will be part of your travel plans, we suggest you use the Manchester, NH (approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes) airport due to its proximity to Lebanon. Burlington, Vt. is also an option and may have competitive fares (1 hour 20 minutes).

A list of hotels up to 10 miles away from the hospital, as well as links to regional airports, hotels and ground transportation can be found within the Travel Information (PDF) document.
