Quotes from past fellows

D-H fellowship experience prepared me very well for the ID world. In particular, the wide breadth of cases seen, especially the training on ID ortho and ID transplant, has been really valuable. I also really appreciated the opportunity to do LPMR in conjunction with my fellowship, which has been tremendously helpful during the COVID pandemic as I was assigned to work on Employee Health and Safety during the pandemic.

Being in the ID department at DHMC is like being in a big family. I had the opportunity to learn from some of the most brilliant minds in ID and yet they all have an open-door policy and would give me not only work advice but also life advice. The fellows are very tight knit and everyone always had my back. I feel very confident that my training at DHMC has prepared me for my upcoming life in the ID world in Washington.

Seven months after finishing my Infectious Disease fellowship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, COVID-19 hit my new practice area, hard. As a new ID attending physician, I found myself suddenly in a central role within the incident command team, overseeing isolation measures, reorganizing hospital capacity, and coordinating our evolving diagnostic and therapeutic response at the institutional level - all for an infection no one yet fully understood. My training at DHMC prepared me for this; regular reflections on lessons learned from my many infectious disease mentors at Dartmouth carried me through this time. I learned from the entire section, from attending physicians, nurses, co-fellows, laboratory, clinical and administrative staff, about the practice of infectious disease. ID fellowship training at DHMC balances many levels of care, from a patient-centered approach to complex infection and disease states, to rigorous infection control strategies and hospital epidemiology, to public health matters. I came away from my time there with a balanced, well-rounded education, and the skills needed to pivot in times of uncertainty.
