The mission of the Primary Care Track (PCT) of the Dartmouth Internal Medicine Residency Program is to train outstanding general internists with a balanced expertise in the management of complicated inpatient and outpatient medical patients.
The PCT offers 4 PGY-1 positions each year under a unique match number.
- Balance and integrate outpatient and inpatient training (including full intensive care unit experiences).
- Emphasize longitudinal and community-based ambulatory care learning with special opportunities in underserved settings throughout the region.
- Expand electives in critical non-medical specialties (e.g. Orthopedics, ENT, Ophthalmology, Women's Health, Occupational Medicine).
- Focus on skills and resources needed to efficiently and effectively use medical evidence in clinical problem solving.
- Increase ambulatory elective experiences in traditional medical specialties.
Residents in the Primary Care Track are closely integrated with the Categorical Track and share many of the same educational objectives and opportunities. PCT residents participate in the overall Residency's comprehensive curriculum including all conferences and retreats, and work alongside categorical residents in all their inpatient rotations.
