Welcome to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center
We have everything that you would expect a major academic center to have, from inpatient wards, outpatient clinics, to a cardiac Cath lab. Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center is a beautiful institution and provides a welcoming collegial atmosphere.
Every Tuesday the Psychiatry department hosts Grand Rounds for all of its sections. Psychiatry also hosts a department-wide Journal Club at noon on Fridays. When meeting in person for Journal Club, Psychiatry hosts a light lunch. In addition to these, a directed reading syllabus of curated, original source references, covering the gamut from seminal articles in the field to reports of cutting-edge research. All have been selected to stay up to date and to stimulate discussion about what makes both geriatric patients and our sub-specialty’s approach to evaluating and treating them different.
