For the 2022-23 interview season, we will continue with a virtual interview process. Candidates will also be invited to a virtual resident cocktail reception the evening before their interview.

You will have virtual interviews with the Neurology Program Director and Associate Program Director, as well as some of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center Neurology faculty. Starting June 2022, we will have five (5) residents per year and PGY-1 residents will now be Neurology residents instead of PGY-1 Internal Medicine residents. Our program will work closely with Dartmouth Hitchcock Internal Medicine to schedule the PGY-1 year, but now you will all be PGY-1 Neurology residents when you begin our program.
