Why I chose Dartmouth
Apart from being located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, Dartmouth stood apart in that it offered a single environment that provided the best training, a commitment to research, and a focus on resident education.  Top notch training is achieved through strong early operative experiences with highly respected faculty.  The department’s dedication to advancing the field of orthopaedics is evident by the numerous completed and ongoing research projects, such as the SPORT trial.  And to top it all off, there is the opportunity to increase one’s understanding of health care delivery by obtaining a master’s degree through The Dartmouth Institute.  I feel confident that the orthopaedic program at Dartmouth will not only train me to be an excellent orthopaedic surgeon, but will mold me to be a better, well-rounded provider of healthcare.
