Why I enjoy the pathology program at DHMC

The Pathology program at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center is the perfect size for learning our specialty of medicine in a friendly and encouraging environment. The Pathologists love to teach and enjoy discussing interesting cases. The options for research are endless. I have always felt supported in my academic pursuits; by my mentors, our laboratory staff, and the great group of residents that have become a second family! Outside of work, DHMC is located close to my home and the relaxing mountain atmosphere is ideal for hiking or running after work.

About me

Jessica enjoys running, boxing and cycling as well as traveling. Jess serves on the Board of Directors of the CAP Foundation, and will begin a gynecologic pathology fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore in July of 2018.
