Our Program

Clinical program

We provide experience in high-risk obstetrics, diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease, ultrasound, clinical pathology, and genetics.

We offer experience in the long-term medical and developmental follow-up of neonatal patients, neonatal transport, and outreach education. Fellows learn effective ICN administration, interactions with community and referring physicians, and physician-nurse-ancillary caregiver relationships.

Our fellows also participate in the many teaching activities of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine. They are group discussion leaders for second-year medical students, give didactic lectures to pediatric house staff, and supervise care in the ICN.

Fellows will be assigned to the intensive care nursery every third month, on average, as well as about one weekend per month and one in-house night of call per week.

Research program

Fellows in our program have opportunities to perform research in a variety of disciplines. They can perform basic science research, clinical research (including clinical trials and epidemiologic studies),  quality improvement research, and research on patient safety. Fellows will be mentored by experienced investigators in their research projects. In basic science, fellows work in an established laboratory together with pre- and post-doctoral students. For clinical research, quality improvement  and patient safety projects, they will work with neonatology faculty as well with faculty from The Dartmouth Institute.

Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency

Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center offers the Leadership Preventive Medicine Residency, a unique program in quality improvement, leadership and population health for residents and fellows already training at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. This program allows residents and fellows to obtain a Masters in Public Health degree from The Dartmouth Institute, lead a practicum focused on improving care, and be able to sit for boards in Preventive Medicine.
