Why I enjoy the pathology program at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center 

The Pathology department at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center is exactly what I was looking for. A great environment with excellent people. I come from a country with pretty different Pathology residencies, this is an opportunity I truly feel blessed for. The staff are always looking for new ways to improve and to teach residents and fellows. They keep track of your progress to check that you are getting better. I would choose the Pathology program at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center again.
