The main venues for teaching in the PCT:
- The Section of General Internal Medicine at DHMC provides the faculty and the clinical setting for some continuity clinics, the ambulatory didactic curriculum, and resident mentoring. The section is comprised of more than 20 general internists practicing at the main DHMC campus and at a community-based site about 20 minutes north of the campus in Lyme, NH. Faculty at both sites have a strong commitment to supervising, teaching, and mentoring Primary Care and Categorical Track residents.
- Specialty clinics provide the clinical setting for ambulatory electives. Most of these clinics are located at DHMC; a few are community-based practices. All are staffed by Dartmouth faculty. Each specialty practice has a designated administrative educational coordinator and faculty member responsible for the resident's educational experience. The Program Director is in regular contact with each site based on the feedback received from residents regarding strengths and needs of the rotation.
- A nearby community-based internal medicine practice in Windsor, Vermont hosts PCT longitudinal clinics and community block rotations. The faculty in this private, non-university based practice has been teaching residents and students for more than 20 years. They provide outstanding supervision, training and clinical exposure. Several recent PCT resident graduates have joined this practice.
- Other regional community-based practices host community-based block rotation residents. All of these teaching practices in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine are small- to medium-sized hospital-based practices. Many are rural health clinics located in federally-designated underserved areas. Most sites are within two hours of DHMC; housing is provided for non-commutable sites. These practices and faculty have received extremely positive evaluations by residents.
