Why I enjoy the pathology program at DHMC

I chose to enter into pathology not simply because I enjoy the work or necessarily because the field affords an excellent work-life balance. I also chose pathology because of the amazingly gifted, friendly, and happy people with whom I've had the great good fortune to work. The Pathology Department here at DHMC is no exception. The folks here are committed to creating and maintaining a positive, cogent, and efficient learning environment where residents can flourish. There's not a doubt in my mind that I will receive top-level training, achieve my professional aspirations, and thoroughly enjoy doing so in this unique, beautiful hospital. I'm excited and exceedingly grateful to join such a phenomenal team of remarkable individuals!

About me

Born and raised in Corning, NY, Alex spent roughly a decade living in Buffalo, NY where he completed his undergraduate and medical degrees. He holds a deep respect and fascination for the natural world, enjoying hiking, biking, birdwatching, snowboarding, gardening, and simply being outside. Feeling right at home among the forested mountains, lakes, and streams of the Upper Valley, Alex plans to keep exploring the NH/VT area in search of new trails, new brews, and new friends...that is, when he's not at the gross bench.
