Orthopaedic Surgery Residency
Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Orthopaedic Residency program strives to develop excellence in professional competence by emphasizing consistent patient advocacy and nourishing intellectual curiosity and honesty, all within a comprehensive clinical and research ancillary support system.
The program's atmosphere is informal and relaxed, based on close interpersonal relationships between faculty and residents. The program strives to develop a concerned and competent orthopaedic surgeon capable of confidently pursuing a satisfying practice in general orthopaedics, as well as developing the strong cognitive and clinical foundation required for pursuing subspecialty fellowship training.
There are currently 22 Orthopaedic residents at DHMC (Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center).
