Department Benefits Summary
Learn about our general programs and benefits
In addition to the standard benefits which are offered through Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s GME residency program office, the Dartmouth-Hitchcock radiation oncology residency program provides a number of additional benefits to support our residents with respect to personal and career development. Below is a summary of these additional benefits:
Books and educational expenses
The resident will be provided with an annual academic budget of $1300 for textbooks and other academic educational expenses with this support coming from both Dartmouth’s GME office and our own Section’s GME funds.
Travel and time away
Each resident will be provided time and funding to attend one national meeting annually, including registration, airfare, hotel, and a meal allowance.
Also, residents whose research has been accepted for presentation at an academic conference will have their conference attendance funded by the program. This includes airfare, hotel, and a meal allowance per conference. Residents may attend multiple conferences if their work is accepted for presentation.
In addition, time away and funding will be provided for one ABR Core Exam Review Course during the residency (usually taken in PGY-4 or PGY-5).
As per institutional GME policy, all residents are granted 15 working days’ unencumbered vacation per academic year.
Residents are encouraged to become actively involved in organized radiology, by becoming resident members of and attending the meetings of the American Society of Radiation Oncology, as well as the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). Also, the New England Roentgen Ray Society (NERRS) holds monthly conferences at the Harvard Conference Center in Boston.
The New Hampshire Radiological Society funds two residents each year to attend the annual ACR Annual Meeting and Chapter Leaders' Conference in Washington, D.C. Dartmouth-Hitchcock radiology residents represent the State at this meeting.
The incoming Chief Resident is funded to attend the American College of Radiology’s Annual Meeting and Chapter Leadership Conference in the May heralding the beginning of his or her Chief year. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to discuss matters of mutual interest and engage in presentations and other interactions with peers, teachers, and mentors.
