Chief Resident Welcome
For those considering coming to DHMC for Internal Medicine, I will share a few of the things that drew me to this program 3+ years ago. I was unsure exactly what career path I would choose, and I wanted a strong, well-rounded academic program where I could develop skills in any number of subspecialties as well as general internal medicine. I was also attracted to the fact that I could balance my training with a good quality of life for myself and my family, including outdoor activities and an affordable cost of living. But the biggest draw was the feeling I got from the residents and program leadership when I came to visit, that my colleagues and mentors at this program would be smart, funny, accomplished, and most of all down-to-earth and easy to talk to. I hope, virtual recruiting and all, that you can come away from the interview season with some of the same feeling.
I grew up in a small town in southern Maine and went to college at Princeton University. After college, I worked for several years developing science museum programs and exhibitions at the Museum of Science, Boston, and later at MIT. I went to medical school at Tufts University School of Medicine. At DHMC, I am a graduate of the IM Primary Care Track as well as the Medical Educator Pathway. I live in Vermont with the happy chaos of my 4- and 2-year old children and my wife, Emily.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the program or life as a resident at DHMC!
From my interview day, I knew that Dartmouth was the place that I wanted to be for my residency. Everyone that I met was not only committed to resident education and career development but also interested in residents’ well-being. After meeting the current residents, I knew that I wanted to be a part of this close-knit, academically-excellent community. After three years of residency here, I have deeply appreciated Dartmouth’s culture of promoting intellectual curiosity in a collegial environment. I have enjoyed my residency so much that I hope to stay in the area as a hospitalist.
I grew up in Boston, studied sociology at Harvard College and attended medical school at Harvard Medical School. Although I have spent the majority of my life in a city, I love the fresh mountainous air of New Hampshire. I feel so lucky to be within 30 minutes of wonderful hiking trails, lakes for kayaking and sailing and beautiful ski slopes. When the weather is not conducive to being outdoors, I also enjoy tackling escape rooms!
I hope that you will have the opportunity to experience how unique our training program is in person! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
When I first visited Dartmouth, I found myself surrounded by residents who genuinely seemed to enjoy their work, their lives outside of work, and spending time with one another. That was what I was looking for in a program, and after three years of residency -- I’m happy to say that Dartmouth more than delivered. I’ve been lucky to be part of a bright, compassionate community of coworkers, many of whom have become my closest friends.
I grew up just outside of Philadelphia, PA and am a die-hard Philadelphia sports fan (go Eagles!). I studied Biomedical Engineering and Global Health at Duke University before heading back to Pennsylvania for medical school at Geisinger. While I wasn’t sure where I wanted to end up geographically for residency, I fell in love with the beautiful backdrop that is northern New England and have tried to make the most of every opportunity to explore the lakes and mountains here in the Upper Valley. In my spare time, I love to play tennis, swim, run, and/or hike. My wife and I also love to cook (pizza from scratch is hard to beat) and play board games whenever I get a chance!
I am an alumnus of the Categorical Track of the Internal Medicine residency as well as the Global Health pathway, and I’m happy to answer whatever questions you may have about either track or pathway or anything else!
Looking forward to meeting you (virtually) this fall!
