Why I enjoy the pathology program at DHMC

The pathology program at Dartmouth Hitchcock provided a supportive and friendly environment from day one. I always feel comfortable asking for advice to upper level residents and they are always willing to help new residents. There is an awesome atmosphere here among attendings, staff and residents. Everyone enjoys teaching and sharing their experiences. It is a great opportunity for me to be in this program.
