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. In October 2021, the Neurology Residency Program received approval from the ACGME to increase their resident complement by 1 per year AS WELL AS change our structure from an Advanced Program with a guaranteed preliminary medicine spot to a fully Categorical Program. The neurology residency will work closely with internal medicine to schedule the PGY1 year, but you will all be PGY1 Neurology residents when you begin our program.
