Nadine Carter

Nadine Carter, DNP, FNP-C, BC-ADM

Education: 

  • University of Idaho, BS in Psychology
  • Idaho State University, BS in Nursing
  • University of Utah, Doctorate of Nurse Practice for Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner 
  • Board certification in Advanced Diabetes Management 

Bio: Nadine is a nurse practitioner born and raised in Idaho. She and her husband, Scott, enjoy being in the outdoors, especially gravel glamping (camping and riding bikes off pavement). Nadine and Scott have 2 standard poodles named Quintus and Clairity. Nadine is an amateur competitive cyclist, and a high school mountain bike coach at a NICA league. She also volunteers as camp medical counselor and camp director for Camp Hodia, a camp for kids with type 1 diabetes.
Palliative motivation: Throughout my 23 years of working in various roles in healthcare, I have experienced a fascinating spectrum of people, spiritual ideals, and the science and art of medicine. Much of my training has been in disease prevention and treatment to prolong life, however I have become intrigued with the intricate human process of accepting mortality while maintaining quality of life and autonomy. I have witnessed exceptional hospice and palliative care, and would like to help expand this rapidly growing field to help improve the later years of our aging population.

Uri Goldberg

Uri Goldberg, MD

Medical school:  St. George's University in England and Grenada
Residency: Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York (Internal Medicine)
Bio: A native of Silver Spring, Maryland, Uri studied biology at Yeshiva University in New York before journeying down to South America for a year of teaching, backpacking, and asado adventures. Following a stint in clinical HIV research at Albert Einstein, Uri attended medical school at St. George's University in England and Grenada and then completed Internal Medicine training in Brooklyn. After residency, Uri spent several years traveling the country as a locum hospitalist while also volunteering as a faculty preceptor at a medical student-run clinic in Brooklyn. Uri is looking forward to joining the HPM team at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and taking advantage of all the incredible outdoor activities the upper valley has to offer.
Palliative motivation: My interest in hospice and palliative medicine grew out of my experience caring for critically ill COVID patients at the beginning of the pandemic. Working with HPM teams to help patients and families navigate the complexities of end-of-life care inspired me to pursue training in the field.

Andrew Harte

Andrew Harte, MSN, AGNP-C

Education:

  • Mount Saint Mary College, BSN
  • UMass Boston, Master’s in Nursing
  • Adult-Gerontology Primary Care NP Certification

Bio: I grew up in New Hampshire and went to Mount Saint Mary College in New York where I played basketball and completed my nursing undergrad (BSN). I returned to New Hampshire for my first nursing job in the ICU at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and worked for 2 years there before working as a traveling nurse for 4 years and seeing a lot of the country that way. In 2015 I took a staff position in the Medical ICU at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where I worked until September 2021. In that time I completed a Master's in Nursing at UMass Boston. I am married to a traveling nurse that I met along the way who is from Georgia, and we have spent the last 6 months as travelers at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta to be closer to her family. I'm excited to return to New Hampshire once again for the next chapter!
Palliative motivation: In 13 years as a bedside RN in various ICU's across the country, I was exposed to, and grew passionate about the care of patients and families coping with end of life scenarios. Playing a role in informed decision making, and ensuring comfortable passages from this life to the next have been profoundly rewarding experiences. Unfortunately, our treatment and technology driven medical system has blurred the lines of what can be done, and what should be. I look forward to training in palliative and hospice care to hone the communication skills required to be an effective voice for patients and families facing imminent challenges, and for the future of medicine.

Reubender Randhawa

Robby Randhawa, MD

Medical school: American University of Antigua College of Medicine, Antigua & Barbuda
Residency: University of Arizona – South Campus (Internal Medicine)
Bio: I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and I will forever be a fanatic supporter of the Toronto Raptors, Blue Jays and Maple Leafs. I love to play all sports but especially basketball – once upon a time I could even dunk, and I’m hoping to get back to that despite getting older! I love listening to music, I’m open to all genres but tend to favor hip-hop. I love to dance. I love to laugh. I love the outdoors. I’m an open book so if you ever want to know something feel free to ask!
Palliative motivation: I was motivated to train in hospice and palliative care through my experiences in the ICU, especially during the pandemic, as well as experiences in my personal life.

Kevin Stirling

Kevin Stirling, MD

Medical school: Boston University
Residency: Boston University Medical Center (Internal Medicine)
Bio: I grew up in the Boston area and did all of my education and training near home. I did my undergraduate at Tufts University where I majored in Clinical Psychology. I then spent a few years working, first in a psychiatric hospital as a nursing assistant, and then as a research coordinator at a cancer center. I then went to medical school at Boston University, followed by residency at Boston Medical Center in Internal Medicine. Outside of medicine I am a soccer player and fan. I am looking forward to close proximity to outdoor activities when I move up to New Hampshire!
Palliative motivation: I became interested in palliative care because of my previous work in oncology and psychiatry. I am motivated to help patients and families navigate complex medical decision making.
