Internal Medicine Residency
Welcome to the Dartmouth Internal Medicine Residency website! We hope this site will give you a sense for what makes our program so special.
We are uniquely located in rural northern New England and care for two million patients living in New Hampshire and Vermont with a Case Mix Index, a measure of the acuity of illness in Medicare patients, equivalent to academic urban tertiary care centers. Our categorical residency program, which includes a primary care track, trains 19 residents per year at our two sites, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH, and the White River Junction Veterans Administration Medical Center in White River Junction, VT.
We support the academic development of each resident by offering extensive opportunities to teach students and residents, formal instruction in resident education in the PGY-2 year, and a medical educator pathway. Residents may also match into other available pathways such as global health equity, or the ABIM research pathway. Dartmouth has a full array of subspecialties and fellowships in which residents may continue their training. Residents can also take advantage of The Dartmouth Institute nearby, earning a tuition-free MPH in the Leadership and Preventative Medicine Residency. Alumni surveys confirm that our graduates feel well trained and ready to continue their professional lives after residency. Those who pursue advanced training successfully match into highly competitive fellowships.
I chose to train at Dartmouth because I wanted to gain an outstanding education in a collegial, nurturing environment and that environment has led me to stay. Dartmouth is a warm and welcoming community that helps residents develop into outstanding clinicians while promoting wellness, academic achievement and collegiality. Our residents are a tight-knit, well-rounded group of physicians who support, teach and learn from one another. They value hard work and camaraderie and have found a supportive program that can help them grow.
Our program will help you build your career in whatever direction you wish through outstanding clinical experiences, one-on-one career counseling from residency program leadership, and academic mentorship. Your success is our main focus. We're thrilled that you're considering us for the next stage of your training! Please explore our website and see what we have to offer, and better yet, come for a rotation.
