Rheumatology Fellowship

The Rheumatology Fellowship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) provides the patient contact, instruction and mentoring to learn the art and science of rheumatology, preparing post-graduates fellows for a career in either academic medicine or community practice.  This includes care for patients with a wide variety of conditions, tools to practice life-long learning, modeling in professional conduct, development of communication and interpersonal skills and quality and practice improvement. 

DHMC is comprised of the Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital and the Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic, both located in Lebanon, NH and the Veterans Administration Medical Center located nearby in White River Junction, VT.  The Rheumatology Fellowship at DHMC is a two-year program, accredited by the ACGME. We accept two fellows per year.

The core rotations for the Rheumatology Fellow include outpatient and inpatient service at DHMC, outpatient and inpatient service at VAMC, and pediatric outpatient clinic through the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD).

The program is structured to help the fellow grow from an undifferentiated internist into a Rheumatology subspecialist through graded acquisition of rheumatology knowledge beginning with general principles of anatomy, bone and connective tissue metabolism and immunology, through the disease processes common to rheumatology, and finally into the unusual disease processes that make Rheumatology unique.
