Why I chose Dartmouth
Dartmouth’s interview day was one of the most thorough I participated in and showed right away the program’s commitment to resident education. With only 1 fellow in the department, residents are given more opportunities for learning and more one-on-one time with attendings. Additionally, the department’s national leadership in health policy and outcomes research was a huge draw for me. Being originally from NH, I also looked forward to the opportunity to live close to home, family, and friends in the beautiful Upper Valley.

Why I chose Dartmouth
Dartmouth Orthopaedics is truly in a league of its own and the ideal program for resident training. All orthopaedic sub-specialties are not only represented at DHMC, but the attendings under whom we train are veritable titans of the field. As the only tertiary referral center in a ~100 mile radius, there is an abundance of complex pathology to which we provide care. Beyond the educational opportunities, what sets Dartmouth apart is the genuine investment in one another and support amongst the department. The entire orthopaedics team, irrespective of whether they are part of the clinical, administrative, or research staff, has a familial dynamic and works to help each member excel. Outside of work, the Upper Valley is simply breathtaking and truly a playground for those who love the outdoors.
